Scholarship Funds

Investing in Deserving Students

In creating a Scholarship Fund, you invest in your community’s future and show students you care. Your community foundation provides the expertise to help you meet your personal goals and award scholarships to deserving area students. Your gift can help students–from preschool to postgraduate–achieve their lifetime dreams.

You determine the criteria students must meet to receive a scholarship from your fund, whether they are based on a student’s field of study, academic achievements, extracurricular activities, financial need, background, or geography. We handle all the administrative details–and award the scholarships in the name of the fund that you established. You will receive updates on the impact your gift is making in our community.
