Scholarships


Striving to impact our students and residents

Every year, we award hundreds of scholarships to college-bound students and residents pursuing career training.

These awards are just one way the Community Foundation is impacting our community on the road to Goal 2025.

Scholarships are available for high school students and adult students. The online application system is also used for scholarships from Lake, Mecosta, and Osceola community foundations.
