Thanks to generous donors, we have scholarships available to students of every age, income level, academic ability, and athletic aim.

When applying for Community Foundation Scholarships, it is helpful to have the following information on hand: Class Rank and Class Size (if you are a current high school senior), GPA, and Diploma Type.

Remember, funding is limited; Community Foundation scholarships are highly competitive. Awards are subject to IRS regulations, Community Foundation policy, and criteria established by donors. Community Foundation scholarships are to be used only for qualified education expenses as defined by the IRS- meaning tuition, fees, and book costs only. Funds cannot be applied toward any other expenses (including room and board) that students may incur during their college career.
