Dr. Scholl Foundation Cardinal First Scholarship

The Dr. Scholl Foundation Cardinal First Scholarship was established to help meet a financial gap for first-generation, Cardinal First students who show exemplary scholastic passion and drive, as well as interest in a study abroad program, internship, or meaningful volunteer experience they otherwise could not participate in because they would be working an outside job to cover their financial gap.

Eligibility Criteria:

  • Current Student at North Central College
  • As of FALL 2019 SEMESTER, have Sophomore, Junior, or Senior status
  • Active Participant of North Central College’s signature Cardinal First Program
  • First-Generation (For North Central, first-generation means "neither parent having a four-year degree)
  • Financial need (If applicable, please fill out the 2019-20 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by the scholarship application deadline. The 2019-20 FAFSA will request 2017 tax information.)
  • Completion of the Dr. Scholl Foundation Cardinal First Scholarship application on North Central College’s Academic Works Website by the designated deadline

Please note the following RECIPIENT requirements:

  • Recipients must be active participants and continue to actively participate in North Central College’s Cardinal First Program
  • Recipients may not work more than ten (10) hours per week during the semester in which they are receiving the scholarship. The spirit of the scholarship is to assist students financially so that they may participate in meaningful programs (study abroad, internship, volunteer experiences) that they otherwise would not be able to because of their need to work to support their academic pursuits.

Award
Two (2) $2,500 scholarships awarded for the semester recipient will be studying abroad, participating in an internship, or participating in a meaningful volunteer experience.
