OLEAN - Applications for scholarships administered by the Cattaraugus Region Community Foundation are due April 1.
There are 14 different scholarship funds, according to Karen Niemic Buchheit, CRCF executive director. Some scholarships target students graduating from specific high schools, some for specific areas of study and others for financial need. Each scholarship is tailored to the donor's wishes.
"The Community Foundation is able to offer area students scholarships thanks to the tremendous generosity of the donors who have established these scholarship funds and the people who support them through donations," said Buchheit.
Scholarship award amounts range from $500 to $10,000 each.
Applications are available online at the Community Foundation's website at www.cattfoundation.org, at the Community Foundation's office and through area high school guidance offices.
