Scholarships available for non-traditional students

| June 7, 2022

The Coshocton Foundation has announced its 2022 scholarships for adult, “non-traditional” students.

Foundation executive director Bob Pell explained that the Coshocton Foundation awards more than 100 scholarships each year, most of which are designated for graduating high school seniors. In recent years, more adults are returning to college and many have expressed a need for financial help.

The foundation partners with COTC and the Coshocton Promise program through the Grace and Clarence Miller Scholarship Fund. Once accepted to COTC, no additional application is required, but the FAFSA must be completed and income and residency guidelines apply. In addition, since 2016 the $2,000 one-time Jones Metal Products Company Adult Scholarship is also directed to a student attending COTC. Students should use the Jones Metal guidelines and application found on the CF website and apply directly to COTC. In addition, the following are offered to students (21 or older) regardless of school attended:

  • Ruby S. Hawthorne Memorial Adult Scholarship – $1,000 one-time award with no restriction on the student’s school or major.
  • Ruth Schooler Memorial Adult Scholarship – $1,000 one-time for an individual going into the field of business or related areas.
  • Beulah Brownfield Memorial Adult Scholarship – $1,000 one-time regardless of school or major.
  • Kenneth Berry Memorial Adult Scholarship – $1,000 (renewable) will be offered in 2022. The recipient will be eligible to renew for a second year.

Applications are available online at www.coshoctonfoundation.org or at the Coshocton Foundation office at 220 S. Fourth St., Coshocton.

The deadline for completed applications is Thursday, June 30 at 4 p.m. More information is available at www.coshoctonfoundation.org.
