Last year we awarded more than $1.5 million in student scholarships! With hundreds of scholarships available, you could be eligible to receive funding for tuition, books and supplies.

Student dreams become reality thanks to private gifts from generous individuals, community groups and businesses. Not all Foundation Scholarships are based on financial need. Students are also awarded scholarships for academic achievement in specific areas of study, community involvement and a variety of other factors. It’s easy to find out if you qualify for any of the scholarships we offer. Just complete the Foundation Scholarship Application and you will automatically be matched with any scholarships that you are eligible to apply for!
