Scholarships


Scholarship Program

Scholarships and Educational Grants are one of the finest ways a person can extend a portion of their estate, be it large or modest, to encourage young people on their pursuit of an education.  Oftentimes, this encouragement is just what it takes to keep a young person educationally motivated.

In 2016, 102 scholarships totaling $181,100 were awarded.  The Foundation has awarded a total of 2,512 scholarships in the past 51 years.  There are now 38 permanent scholarship funds using investment income only.  Additional scholarships are awarded from designated gifts, and various funds as deemed appropriate.

The Hamilton Community Foundation scholarship cycle for 2019 will open in late December 2018.  Please check back for further information and application instructions.
