Foundation for Springfield Public Schools

The Foundation manages and awards several scholarships to graduating seniors each year. These scholarships are distributed in May at recognition ceremonies and graduations.  When searching for Foundation scholarships, students should review each of the following sections: the district wide scholarships, rotating scholarships, and the scholarship opportunities specific to the graduate’s school. Scholarship guidelines and applications are available for download here.  All scholarship applications must be submitted to your school counselor, not the Foundation office. For more information on scholarships contact your school counselor.

Students, please check the scholarship guidelines for eligibility requirements on all Foundation scholarships, making sure to check these three sections for the opportunities that are available through the Foundation: district wide, rotating, and specific school scholarship sections.  If you are a student at OTC Middle College or Study, you may apply for scholarship opportunities at your sender/home school, as well, but you will need to send your application to the sender/home school by the deadline posted by that school.  You MUST fill out a separate application for each Foundation scholarship you are applying for; which may be done by saving the form and typing the different scholarship names on the top of the forms, then printing the forms to submit.  All scholarship applications should be turned into your school counselor by the deadlines set by your high school counseling office.  These dates can be found on the Foundation scholarship page, and also at your high school counselors office.  You may call the Foundation office at 523-0144 with any additional questions regarding scholarship opportunities available through the Foundation for Springfield Public Schools.

PLEASE NOTE: For any scholarships: family members of any officer, manager or trustee of the organization or family members of major contributors to the scholarship fund are NOT elegibile to recieve the scholarship.  If you have any questions about this contact the Foundation office.
