For Donors

The 2017 scholarship season awarded 78 scholarships to 104 students to further their education. Many of our scholarships have been established by donors wanting to honor a favorite teacher, principal, or a family member. Through the Foundation, you can partner with students as they work to achieve their dreams while honoring those who made education meaningful for you.

For Students

To apply for scholarships, create an account and complete the online common application. The online application system will recommend scholarships you qualify for based on your answers to the application questions. Scholarship requirements vary; please review each scholarship carefully for the documents required.

Scholarship amounts range from $500 to $40,000. Some funds award multiple scholarships, but not all funds award renewable scholarships every year. The amount on some scholarship awards can vary from year to year due to fluctuations in investment returns.
