2021 Scholarship Process Opens January 10, 2021

Community Foundation scholarships are offered annually for high school seniors and college students, as well as adults (for high school juniors, please visit the Mother Moon Service Scholarship). Scholarships are for students who will be attending a college, university, trade school, or community college this fall. Most scholarships are for one year, but some are 2-year, some 4-year, and some are renewable. Each scholarship may have its own eligibility requirements, but there is only one common application to complete. 

Complete details about the 2021 scholarship process will be posted by January 10, 2021.
