Scholarship Applications


The Coshocton Foundation has announced its 2024 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. Pell is excited that the Coshocton Foundation is offering the new, $1,000 George Leach Memorial Scholarship to those with a military familial connection, either through parents or grandparents or the applicant themselves.

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 Legacy Scholarship is also directed to a student attending 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 2024.

Applications are available online here. (This links directly to the new online scholarship platform, Kaleidoscope, for a description of the available scholarships and directions for completing the applications.)

Applications will be reviewed and applicants will be contacted by mail.

The deadline for completed applications is Friday, July 19 at 4:00 p.m.
