Unity Foundation of LaPorte County Community Scholarship

The common application was designed to allow students to apply for several different scholarships through one application. The common application evaluates the responses provided and matches applicants with the scholarships for which they may be eligible. The common application saves students time by requiring only one application to be completed for most Unity Foundation scholarships.  When the student goes through the initial questions on the website and is then matched to various scholarships, they should choose to complete the Common Application first as it will auto-fill into the other applications.  To start the process, they should use the GREEN Begin Search button on the page.
