Attention Vacaville and Fairfield high school seniors: Scholarship season has begun.
Solano Community Foundation earlier this week announced the opening of the 2018 application cycle for its college scholarship program.
Beginning Monday, applications will be accepted for 10 scholarships from the Harry and Eleanor D. Nelson Vacaville Endowment Fund to graduating seniors at Vacaville, Wood and Buckingham Charter high schools.
Available to qualified applicants are seven four-year Nelson scholarships at $14,000 each ($3,500 each academic year); two one-year scholarships at $2,500 each; and one one-year scholarship for $5,000.
This year, applicants must apply directly to the foundation, using the forms downloaded from the Fairfield-based nonprofit’s website, www.solanocf.org. Handwritten applications will not be accepted.
