Apply for a Scholarship

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 next 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 Advisory 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 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. For additional information, please contact Jessica Tudyk, Program Officer, at 806-379-9400 or by email at
