Frequently Asked Questions

Where can I get an application?

You may download an application from this website. There are different applications for first-time applicants and previous recipients of a Delmar Scholarship.

Do I have to attend Franklin Regional to be eligible to apply?

No. You have to have been a resident of the Franklin Regional School District for at least the prior year to be eligible, but you do not have to attend or have graduated from Franklin Regional. You may be home schooled, attend private, or parochial school, or be enrolled in a cyber charter school. If you have already graduated from any public or private secondary school or have a GED, you are eligible to apply if you have been a resident of the Franklin Regional School District for at least the prior year.

If I already attend college or another type of school, but did not apply for the Delmar Foundation Scholarship before, am I still eligible?

Yes, you are eligible if you have been a resident of the Franklin Regional School District for at least the prior year. If you meet this and the other eligibility requirements, you should complete the Application for First-Time Applicants.

What is a Student Aid Report (SAR)?

Student Aid Report (SAR) is the report that results when you successfully complete the Free Federal Application for Student Aid (FAFSA). You can log in to the FAFSA web site to obtain a copy of your report. Please be sure to download the full report, which will be several pages in length.

What is a Financial Aid Summary (FAS)?

A Financial Aid Summary (FAS) is a summary of your expected school expenses and all sources of financial aid that is prepared by the Financial Aid Office of the school you plan to attend. Because your sources of financial aid may change from the time you apply for the Delmar Foundation Scholarship and the time we make the awards, we may ask you to send us an updated FAS.

What is the application deadline?

The application package (including all supporting documents) must now be postmarked by May 2, 2022, or uploaded to this website or faxed to 866-321-9986 by 5:30 PM (EDT) on that date.

May I upload a scanned copy of an official transcript to the web site when I apply?

Yes. If your school can provide you an electronic copy of your transcript, you may submit that, as well.

How many scholarships do you grant each year?

There is no set number of scholarships granted each year. The Delmar Foundation Scholarship Selection Committee determines the number and amount of scholarship awards based on the number of deserving applicants and available funding.

How do you select scholarship recipients?

The Delmar Foundation Scholarship Selection Committee reviews all applications and selects scholarship recipients who meet the eligibility requirements. Awards are granted without regard to race, color, age, sexual orientation, gender, disability or national origin.

Is financial need a factor in the selection of scholarship recipients?

Yes. The founder of the Delmar Foundation established it to help students who need financial help to continue their education; so financial need is a primary consideration in the selection of scholarship recipients.

How do you determine the amount of an individual award?

The Delmar Foundation Scholarship Selection Committee considers the applicant's financial resources, as well as the expected costs at the school the applicant plans to attend. The maximum individual award is $5,000 a year.

Do students have to attend a four-year college or university full-time to be eligible?

No. Scholarships are available to students who are attending any accredited college, university, junior college, technical college, or trade school. They are available to both full- and part-time students.

How many years can I apply for a scholarship?

Students who are enrolled in a multi-year program are eligible for the number of years that is typically required to complete their course of study or four years, whichever is less, provided that they also meet academic performance requirements. If you receive your first Delmar Foundation Scholarship after you have started college or other schooling, your eligibility to reapply will be based on the time it should take you to complete your course of study (e.g., if you receive a scholarship for the third year of a four-year program, you would be eligible to reapply once.) You must re-apply each year.

If I apply, when will I find out if I will receive a scholarship?

We will notify all applicants of our decision by mail on June 1, 2022.

Will I receive a check for the scholarship if I am selected?

If you receive a scholarship, the Delmar Foundation will send your award directly to the school you are attending. We will ask you to send us a copy of your tuition bill when you receive it, and use it to ensure that the award is credited to your account.
