The Foundation manages and awards several scholarships to graduating seniors each year. These scholarships are distributed in May at recognition ceremonies and graduations. When searching for Foundation scholarships, students should review each of the following sections: the district wide scholarships, rotating scholarships, and the scholarship opportunities specific to the graduate’s school. Scholarship guidelines and applications are available for download here. All scholarship applications must be submitted to your school counselor, not the Foundation office. For more information on scholarships contact your school counselor.
