Scholarship Central at the Muskingum County Community Foundation has their own "March Madness" going on this week.

Next Tuesday, April 1st is the deadline for those students wishing to apply for scholarship opportunities. The MCCF has extended their hours from 4 to 7 PM for this Wednesday and Thursday, as well as next Monday and Tuesday. No appointments necessary.

"Students can come in and get the help for filling out the applications. Anything from reviewing essays to helping them figure out answering the questions, to helping them sort out which application they should do next," said Heather Sands, Director of College Access Programs.

The online application process is simple. For community foundation scholarships, once you fill out one application, you’re done. Your information is saved and can be applied toward however many scholarships you would like.

"We have applications for aything from the Grant Hickman Scholarship, which is very broad and students in Muskingum and surrounding counties can actually apply to that, to the Bucci-Dietz Art Scholarship. We have scholarships for every major, every GPA. Whether your currently in college or a current high school senior," said Sands.
