The Mary E. Bivins Foundation accepts and reviews scholarship applications once a year. The application typically becomes available the first Monday in December for the following school year. The application deadline is typically the last Friday in January.
All new applicants are required to interview with the Foundation’s Scholarship Interview Committee. Applicants are generally contacted during the month of February to schedule the interview. Interviews will be held in March and recommendations from the Committee will then be provided to the Foundation’s Grants and Scholarship Committee for consideration. The Grants and Scholarship Committee will formulate final recommendations to the Board of Directors. Applicants are notified of the Board’s decision as soon as possible, generally in the middle of May.
