Scholarships

Thanks to our generous donors, we award over $1 million in scholarships and emergency grants annually to students. Scholarship awards remain among the most important ways to encourage student success. They relieve financial burden while offering validation of a challenging endeavor. A scholarship can provide a significant positive outcome for a student’s educational journey, career trajectory, and life.

Donors who establish a named fund can identify requirements and preferences to receive their scholarships. Students apply through a centralized scholarship process and are matched with the scholarships for which they qualify. 

Establishers of named funds have a personal connection with the students they help. They receive individual scholarship profiles from the students they fund each time an award is made. Annually students and donors visit at our scholarship breakfast to share the impact and excitement of education. 

The first step in establishing a named fund is usually having a conversation. Feel free to call or email Maggie or Kayla, or fill out the interest form on the right and we will contact you.

Maybe we persevered with the work we were already doing with more urgency than before. Maybe we constructively talked about race with friends and coworkers for the first time, ever.” Meg and Tyler wanted to make a lasting change to move towards equality and representation in the community.
