How much is the Havenpark Scholarship award? 

Scholarship award amounts vary.  Awards are renewable up to three (3) additional years or until a bachelor’s degree is earned, whichever occurs first, on the basis of satisfactory academic performance and part-time or full-time enrollment.

Award amounts will be adjusted if a recipient changes college type or enrollment status. Awards may transfer from a 2-year institution to a 4-year institution and vice versa.

Each spring awardees must complete an assessment of demonstrated financial need, in conjunction with the Free Application for Federal Financial Aid (FAFSA).  Award amounts may be adjusted each year depending on demonstrated financial need.

Awards are for undergraduate study only.

Are Havenpark employees eligible for academic scholarship consideration?  No.  Havenpark employees and their family members are not eligible for scholarship consideration.

If I meet the eligibility criteria, will I automatically be awarded a scholarship?  No.  The Havenpark Communities Scholarship is a competitive scholarship.  All applications will be reviewed thoroughly and only a select number will receive a postsecondary academic scholarship. 

How is the scholarship award distributed?  Scholarship awards are disbursed directly to the institutional Financial Aid office in August of 2024 upon verification of enrollment.

How can the scholarship be used?  The scholarship can be used towards institutional tuition and fees and additional educational expenses, such as on-campus housing and meal plans.

If selected, can I use the Havenpark Scholarship at any school?  The scholarship can only be utilized at an accredited two- or four-year college, university, or vocational-technical school.  A database of accredited institutions in the United States can be found here.

When working on the Havenpark Scholarship application, do I need to complete the application in one sitting? You will be able to save your progress as you work through the scholarship application.  It does not need to be completed in one sitting.

Will I need to upload any documents?  Applicants will be required to upload a copy of their cumulative high school or college transcript.

Do I have to submit an online recommendation?  While an online recommendation is not required to be able to submit your application, we highly encourage it as an online recommendation will be a component utilized in the application review process.

Who should I ask to be my online recommendation writer?  If you’re a current high school senior, know that teachers or school counselors make ideal online recommendation writers.  If you are unable to identify a teacher or counselor or have been out of school for some time, a leader in your church, a supervisor in your place of employment, or even your community manager can complete the online recommendation.
