The Grand Island Community Foundation has long supported the educational aspirations of area students through our scholarship program. Today, the Foundation administers nearly 75 scholarship funds and in 2018 awarded over $140,000 to students continuing their education. Scholarships are made possible through the support of indvidiuals, families, businesses, and organizations who value continued education for local students. 

Grand Island Community Foundation utilizes an online application process that allows the student to complete an eligibility quiz in order to help identify the various scholarships for which she or he qualifies and should apply.

The application can be found on our website beginning on December 1, 2018, and the application deadline for the 2019 scholarship cycle is midnight on February 18, 2019.
