You must complete this "Accept Scholarship" process for each of your CSF of Bedford Dolars for Scholars scholarships by June 30, 2019.

Checks will be issued mid to late July, but only for scholarship awards that have been accepted by the deadline. 

Financial Aid: If you are receiving any financial aid from your school, they will sometimes reduce the financial aid based on awards received from outside sources, such as CSF of Bedford Dollars for Scholars. If so, you may wish to spread your award over several years, however, you must let us know of this decision by contacting us at If you have questions about the policies of your college, please contact the school directly.

Delaying attendance: If you are delaying your college attendance for any reason you must still accept your award, but must notify us. Should you defer acceptance to the future, but not claim it within 2 years, the scholarship will be voided unless deferment or college choice changes have been communicated in writing to Dollars for Scholars on alternative plans before the expiration of that time period.
