Applying For Grants or Scholarships

Competitive Grants

The ability to apply for competitive grants is announced to the local media and through this website. A simple application form is then submitted by a specified deadline.

The Foundation’s Grants Committee reviews the applications and selects the most worthy for competitive grants that year. A simple written agreement is then executed between the recipient and the Foundation and funds must typically be spent within one year of receipt.

In general, the Foundation does not approve grant requests outside the normal grant review cycle.

Scholarships

Scholarship applications are submitted directly through the high schools. Please contact your respective high school to learn about the application process. In general, applications are submitted in the fall/winter and awarded each May.
