Helping Students Achieve Their Goals

Thanks to generous donors, we have awarded millions of dollars to support students working to reach their full potential in high schools, colleges, and universities across the country.

Since 1998, the Foundation has awarded more than $5.6 million in private donor scholarships to help students obtain a higher education.

200+ Scholarships Award Opportunities with One Application

High school seniors and current college students can apply for more than 200 scholarship awards online with one general application.

Applicants are matched with all awards for which they qualify.

New applicants will start with the general application after creating an account in our scholarship portal. Once students complete the eligibility quiz to line them up with our available scholarships, the system will automatically filter scholarships for which the student is eligible. Then students will fill out the rest of the application if they are eligible. Only one application is needed to apply to multiple scholarships, but student must submit it for each scholarship for which they wish to apply.

If you are applying for one specific scholarship (such as the Sonoco Scholarship or the Seth Muennich Scholarship), please use the General Application unless you have been given a special access code.
