The program is administered by Scholarship America®, the nation’s largest designer and manager of scholarship, tuition assistance, and other education support programs for corporations, foundations, associations, and individuals. Eligibility for individual programs is determined at the sole discretion of the sponsor, and eligible applications are reviewed by Scholarship America’s evaluation team. Awards for this scholarship are granted to eligible recipients without regard to creed, religion, sexual orientation, disability, or national origin.
Applicants may only apply for one award.
James L. Warner Education Fund Scholarship recipients will receive a $5,000 award. Up to four awards will be granted. Applicants may only receive one award.

Awards are not renewable; however, students may reapply to the program each year they meet eligibility requirements. Awards are for undergraduate study only.
Applicants will be notified in June. Not all applicants to the program will be selected as recipients.
Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of The Orange County Community Foundation. Payments are made in one installment in early August.
Financial need will be considered. Applicants must demonstrate need.
Selection of recipients for the James L. Warner Education Fund Scholarship is made by Scholarship America.
