Make the ACT part of your college journey today! 

The ACT can help you stand out on applications and qualify for scholarships and specific majors.  Take advantage of testing now and cross a big "to-do" item off your list.  You can find this information under "Testing" as well.  


The Canton Student Loan Foundation provides low interest student loans to Stark County graduates who have and maintain at least a 2.00 GPA and who are pursuing post high school education or training on a full-time basis. Qualified applicants can borrow each academic year up to a total maximum loan of $16,000. Typically, students start borrowing at $4,000 per year but can get more if they are a college sophomore, junior or senior when they start borrowing with us. 

We want to be available to the students, when needed, so we are leaving our application portal open throughout the year. There is no deadline to apply. If you hear from previous students or know of anyone who needs help now or in the spring, please refer them to our website ( or our office (330.493.0020).
