The CIRI Foundation (TCF) promotes students applying for the full academic year, however we understand that sometimes circumstances may lead a student to apply for Fall term only vs the full academic year. Same requirements and award terms apply as noted above. If you apply for Fall term only, you must reapply at the Dec. 1 Mid-Year Scholarship deadline to be considered for Spring/Winter funding. It is your responsibility to reapply.

Award Details:

  • Full-time students: eligible to receive 1 award up to $2500 per Fall term
  • Part-time students: eligible to receive 1 award up to $2250 per Fall term

Reasons to apply for Fall term only:

  • You are planning to switch schools after Fall term
  • You are planning to switch from part-time to full-time after Fall term
  • You are planning to graduate after Fall term
