Scholarships for Students

Helping local students pursue higher education

The Foundation manages over 40 scholarship funds, which were established by local individuals, families, businesses and organizations. Our scholarships provide tuition assistance and recognition to local students as they strive to achieve a wide range of goals through the pursuit of higher education.

Each scholarship fund has its own unique criteria for selecting recipients, including academic achievement, financial need, educational and career goals, community involvement and ethnic background. Annual scholarship awards range from $500 to $8,000 and may be used for accredited academic and vocational training programs. You can view our scholarships grid detailing criteria for each opportunity.
