A Record $290,000 in 2018 Scholarship Awards Announced
The Community Foundation is pleased to announce that 208 awards were distributed to deserving students for the upcoming 2018-19 academic year. The scholarships and low-interest loans help to fund a recipient's trade school, community college, university, or medical school education. Award criteria may be based on community service, grades, financial need, extra-curricular activities, and other donor specified qualifications.
“It is exciting to see the scholarship program grow each year,” says Program Associate, Miriam Leal. “Our communities step up time and time again to support local youth in their pursuit of higher education.”
In addition to providing support to the award selection process as needed, the Community Foundation staff administers all fiduciary responsibilities ensuring that the scholarship funds are deposited in the student's name at their designated accredited post-secondary institution.
