Request an Application

The Carson Scholars Fund is currently accepting new requests for applications for the 2015 scholarship cycle. The application will be online.

The Carson Scholars Fund remains dedicated to its goal of naming a Carson Scholar in every state. All schools that request an application will be added to our mailing list for our next scholarship season. All requests must come from educators or school administrators. Requests cannot be made for individual students, nor can applications be sent to students’ homes or personal emails. This policy ensures that educators can complete a fair and impartial nomination process to determine which student at their school would best meet the requirements for a Carson Scholarship.

The Carson Scholars Fund has relationships with the following school districts and works in partnership to distribute scholarship applications annually: all Maryland public school districts and counties, Battle Creek Public Schools (Michigan), Pittsburgh Public Schools, Indianapolis Public Schools, and Atlanta Public Schools.  If you are an educator in one of these districts, applications will be distributed to your school through the school system and you do not need to request an application.

All educators are welcome to request an application. Educators can request an application by completing the Application Request Form. At this time, our school nomination procedures do not allow homeschool parents or tutors to request applications.

If you are a parent or student that would like to request an application, please communicate your interest in having your school participate in the program by contacting an educator, guidance counselor, or administrator at your school. Suggest that they request an application for your school by contacting and following the instructions above. Requests from students, parents, or individuals will not be processed.

More information on our scholarship program can be found on the prospective scholars, current scholars, educators, and alumni pages.
