Applications are reviewed by the Scholarship Review Committee and voted on by the Foundation Board of Directors during a regularly scheduled board meeting. The Foundation awards numerous scholarships every year, largely funded by our Foundation, Founding Funders, and other fundraising efforts.

Scholarship awards must be requested prior to the school year for which you applied.  If your scholarship award funding is not requested or you will not be attending college, business or technical trade school for the year you applied, your award will be reclaimed by the Foundation, unless an extension has been requested and approved.
