“Through our scholarship program, The Community Foundation is able to directly support individuals poised to make a difference in their communities,” says Kristina Morris who manages the Foundation’s scholarship program. “While we know the long-term benefits such investments can make, it’s rewarding to hear from students how the funds have helped them to lighten their current financial burdens now, thus allowing them to focus more on the most important aspect of school – learning.”

Last year, more than 600 students applied for scholarships offered through The Community Foundation’s various scholarship funds. More than half a million was awarded to more than 200 students during last year’s program.
