For previous recipients of ACF Scholarships

Anyone who has previously received a scholarship in previous years may apply for a renewal whether or not that scholaship was "renewable".  If you are unsure if your scholarship is renewable, consult this list of scholarships or email scholarship@arlcf.org.

  • If your scholarship was "renewable", you only need to show that you are still eligible, are in good academic standing, and have continued financial need* (as determined by the Arlington Community Foundation) by submitting the following:
    • A completed application at www.applyweb.com/arlingtn
    • A recent college transcript
    • A copy of the Student Aid Report (SAR) from your 2016-2017 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)*
    *required only if the renewable scholarship you most recently received was need-based.

     

  • If your scholarship was not renewable, you may still apply for another scholarship.  This will be awarded on a competitive basis.  Please submit the following:
    • A completed application at www.applyweb.com/arlingtn
    • A recent college transcript
