Foundation Scholarships

Beautiful SmileThe Foundation’s Scholarship Program is designed to increase access and affordability to higher education.  

Scholarship applications are reviewed by members of the Foundation’s Scholarship Committee, comprised of community volunteers that dedicate themselves to reviewing over 200 applications annually.   

Two scholarship application cycles give students plenty of opportunity to apply.  To apply, students may simply complete a general scholarship application.  The scholarship committee matches each applicant to an appropriate scholarship. 

Scholarships are awarded from the 22 endowed scholarships, one-time named scholarships, and unrestricted funds.      

Scholarship gifts may be made through:

Foundation Scholarship Fund - A gift of any amount will benefit a student right now.

Endowed Scholarship Fund - With a gift of $25,000 or more, you can create a permanent scholarship fund.

Earnings of the fund are used to provide a scholarship each year.

One-Time Named Scholarship - With a gift or pledge of $1,000 or more, you can provide scholarships in your own name or in honor or memory of an individual.
