Welcome to The Community Foundation scholarship program.

Thanks to the generosity of our donors dedicated to investing in students’ futures, we administer more than 100 scholarship funds through an open application process. Some scholarships help students from a particular school or area; others provide financial assistance to those pursuing a specific field of study; still others assist students most in need.
