There are two opportunities to submit the Initial Online Application:

  • Early Application Deadline for the Class of 2017 is May 27, 2016.
  • Regular Application Deadline for the Class of 2017 is September 15, 2016.

Please note that a transcript and two (2) recommendations are required as part of the application process.  These must be completed by the application deadline or your submission will not be considered.  Applicants will receive a link to the recommendation form after they submit their portion of the application online.

The Selection Committee will choose a limited number of finalists (50-100) for face-to-face interviews (preferably at the applicant’s high school) before recipients are announced on December 15, 2016.  Interviews will be conducted between June and November 2016.

Reward funds will be administered directly to the Financial Aid Office at the institution chosen by the recipient of the award. If an applicant who is awarded a Cameron Impact Scholarship earns another merit-based scholarship (i.e. military, athletics), the Foundation will discuss how the financial reward might be deferred to other educational expenses down the line.  Annual renewal of the Cameron Impact Scholarship will be dependent upon continued attendance, good academic standing, and an acceptable code of conduct. Evidence of misconduct as determined by the Foundation, school, and legal authorities would result in withdrawal of any funds from the Foundation.

Recipients of the Cameron Impact Scholarship will be required to attend an annual Cameron Impact Scholars Award Ceremony and Summit for the duration of the Scholarship. Graduates of the Scholarship program are strongly encouraged to attend this annual event as well.
