We are excited to announce that students can now apply for over 100 scholarships through our new online application. Based on each student’s unique interests and background the application will generate all of the scholarships for which the student is eligible. Humboldt Area Foundation’s scholarship applications become available annually on January 15th. All scholarship applications must be submitted by March 15th at 5 p.m.
The application is now up and running. We will be extending the deadline to March 19th at 5pm for all students since many applicants had problems accessing their application Saturday morning.
The Scholarships offered through Humboldt Area Foundation were created by local residents to honor their loved ones and to support local students in pursuit of their diverse ambitions; these scholarships feature a wide range of criteria.
We also invite you to stay in touch with us by “liking” Humboldt Area Foundation Scholarships on Facebook. If you have any questions please contact Cassandra Wagner at 707- 442-2993 or by e-mail
