Hear it from our scholarship recipients directly:

I’m so appreciative of scholarship donors at the Community Foundation. In spring 2019, I’ll graduate with my Bachelor’s Degree in health and human services; Master’s Degree in gerontology. I’ve also been accepted to medical school, which I plan to begin next fall. Through this scholarship, my dream of becoming a physician has been made more possible.”
