Apply for a Scholarship

The Mary E. Bivins Foundation accepts and reviews scholarship applications once per year. The deadline to apply for a scholarship for the 2017-2018 academic year was January 31st, 2017.

The application for the 2018-2019 academic year will be posted in December of this year, and due on January 31, 2018.

All new applicants are required to interview with the Foundation’s Scholarship Interview Advisory Committee. Applicants are generally contacted during the month of March to schedule the interview. Interviews will be held in April and recommendations from the Committee will then be provided to the Foundation’s Grants and Scholarship Committee for consideration in formulating final recommendations to the Board of Directors.

Applicants are notified of the board’s decision as soon as possible, generally by the middle of May. If you have questions or need further information, please contact Susan Severn, Grants and Scholarship Program Officer, at 806-379-9400 or by email at
