Cmolik Foundation Scholarships
The Cmolik Foundation awards scholarships to deserving BC students who have demonstrated good work ethic, tenacity and other commendable attributes in achieving their academic and social goals and who, without our support, may not have the means to attend a post secondary institution.  The Foundation looks for students that have faced adversity, but through hard work and determination have been successful in achieving their goals.  Applicants must have been residents of BC for the past 8 years.

The Foundation will reimburse up to $35,000 for books and tuition leading to an undergraduate degree.  The maximum duration for funding is 5 consecutive years from the start of the student’s initial semester.  Reimbursements are paid in installments throughout the duration of the program provided the students meet the Foundation’s scholarship criteria.

Each school may put forth one student who they feel meet the criteria.  In certain circumstances, with prior approval, schools can submit an application for a second student (contact Kirsten Evanish at Kirsten@thecmolikfoundation.com for approval).   Endorsement by the secondary school principal stating that the student has the academic ability to be successful in a post-secondary educational environment is required.

Applications must be received by the Foundation by February 15th of any particular year.  Applications, eligibility requirements and directions on how to apply can be found at http://www.thecmolikfoundation.com/scholarship-criteria-policies.

The Foundation is planning to award at least 10 scholarships to students intending to enroll in university, college, trade or technical school in September 2017.
