Important Scholarship News!


The US Department of Education recently updated the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Normally available in October, the 2023-24 FAFSA was not available until late December, which means THCF also delayed our 2023-24 scholarship application period. Please review our scholarship pages for the latest information and timelines.
