Are you planning to continue your education past high school? Are you looking for a way to ease the burden of paying for it? As the cost continues to skyrocket, more students are seeking scholarships to help offset the cost of tuition and fees.

Supporting Students for 30 Years

Since 1995, we’ve been a resource for students and parents who are looking for a way to offset the cost of tuition while bypassing the use of student loans.

We’re honored that donors have chosen to partner with us by allowing us to administer or process their scholarship applications. We manage 50 of these in-house scholarship funds – assisting donors, students, families, school systems and committees to navigate the process.

Established by Generous Donors

Our scholarships have been established by generous donors who understand the importance of education and want to see deserving students succeed. These donors, with the help of the Community Foundation, define the scholarship's unique criteria and requirements, including the qualifications a student must meet to be eligible to apply.

Recipients are required to "learn and demonstrate sound personal financial principles" as part of the scholarship criteria.
