SIDNEY — Local college-bound students have until midnight on Thursday, May 30, to apply online through the Community Foundation of Shelby County for more than $60,000 in scholarships.

Applicants must provide up to three letters of recommendation, their transcript and the FAFSA Student Aid Report.

Scholarships are available for various medical, engineering, education, arts and law majors. The application was also reopened for recent grads who are former IUTIS boys softball players and Fairlawn, Houston and Minster seniors who are eligible for Kauffman Family Scholarships.
