HOW DO I CLAIM MY SCHOLARSHIP MONEY?
The Coshocton Foundation recently awarded over $150,000 in scholarships to graduating seniors in area schoos. If you have won a Coshocton Foundation scholarship, you will need to submit to the Coshocton Foundation a copy of your billing statement from your college or university. A Summary of Account is NOT sufficient. Nor is anything entitled "Estimated" acceptable, and the listing of scholarships and grants received will not work either. The billing statement should be available on your unversity's website, where you log in to get your other information.
The billing statement must show the amount owed for tuition, fees, room and board, etc. It should also show any other grants or loans you may have. The billing statement must reflect that you owe money. If you have a credit balance, the Coshocton Foundation cannot issue a check. All checks will be made out and sent to your college or university. No checks will be written to individuals. (We are not trying to be difficult -- these are the rules by which we must abide!)
Your billing statement may be mailed to the Coshocton Foundation, P.O. Box 55, Coshocton, Ohio, 43812 or may be dropped off at the office at 220 S. Fourth St., Coshocton. It also may be faxed to 740-622-1660. Please include a telephone number where we can contact you if we have any questions. If you will not need to use your scholarship during your first year of college, please advise us when you expect to submit a billing statement for payment.
