Individuals, companies and civic groups who want to assist students with tuition and other school-related expenses entrust the Community Foundation to establish and administer scholarship funds. Each year, the Community Foundation’s scholarship committee reviews applications and awards scholarships based on applicants’ academic records, test scores, extracurricular activities, work experience, community involvement and personal recommendations.
