​The SRC Foundation and Spoon River College offer a wide variety of scholarships each year to students; scholarships may be for academic excellence, for talent or skill, or for a particular profession or degree. Many of the scholarships are named after individuals who wish to continue making a difference in the lives of others, such as the Stan Cook “Give Hope” scholarship, a new award now available.

The Stan Cook “Give Hope” Scholarship is for students currently enrolled in the Spring 2022 semester, actively working toward a degree or certificate, and who have completed a 2021-2022 FAFSA. Five awards of $1,000 each will be made. Deadline to file for this scholarship is February 11, 2022.

In addition, the general application for Spoon River College Foundation scholarships for the 2022-2023 academic year is now available, and the deadline to file is March 15, 2022. All potential students are encouraged to apply, even if they aren’t sure they’ll be attending in the next academic year or have already received financial aid.

Performing skill grants are awarded each year to students showing special ability or talent in the areas of Art, Drama, Athletics, Agriculture, Speech and Debate. Students receiving these grants may use the awarded funds for tuition or books. Activity sponsors in each area have specific requirements and criteria that must be met.

Students interested in performing skill grants must complete all the necessary eligibility requirements for SRC/SRC Foundation Scholarships as outlined on the application form and contact the individual sponsor regarding additional eligibility requirements.

In order to apply for any scholarship, students must have filed a 2021-2022 FAFSA.
