The majority of the applications (61%) were from females.
The deadline for would-be Games helpers to apply was midnight on Thursday and organisers will now start sorting through forms and arranging interviews for later this year.
Glasgow 2014 chief executive David Grevemberg said: "We are absolutely delighted with the numbers and want to say a massive thank you to everyone who has supported the campaign.
"We have received a record number of applicants and all those who have applied are already helping Glasgow 2014 make history.
"Scots are famed for being generous with their time and have a real heritage of volunteering and it's fantastic to see them, along with people from across the UK and internationally, come forward in such numbers to support their Games."
