The Community Foundation is pleased to announce that 195 awards were distributed to deserving students for the upcoming 2017-18 academic year. The scholarships and loans help to fund a recipient’s trade school, community college, university or medical school education. Award criteria may be based on community service, grades, financial need, extra-curricular activities and other donor specified qualifications.
“We are honored to have added six new scholarship opportunities to our program this year,” stated Program Associate, Miriam Leal. “We work with the donors to establish specifications that reflect their goals and passions. It is rewarding to watch SRCF’s scholarship program grow annually. This year, we reached record numbers in both awards given and total dollars distributed.”
In addition to providing support to the award selection process as needed, the Community Foundation staff administers all fiduciary responsibilities ensuring that the scholarship funds are deposited in the student’s name at their designated accredited post-secondary institution.
