Each year, Grand Rapids Community Foundation awards more than $550,000 in scholarships to students who are college bound or pursuing a technical career.  2010 marks the 65th year the Community Foundation has offered this assistance students. 

Students can now apply for scholarships online at  Applications will be accepted until April 1 and decisions will be announced in June.  

The Community Foundation administers 68 scholarship funds that were generously established by individuals, families, companies, groups and associations.  Some have very specific criteria for awards; others have more broad requirements.  The majority of scholarships are available to students who:

  • are residents of Kent County
  • have a 2.5 grade point average
  • demonstrate financial need

Students who have questions about scholarships or the application process may contact the Community Foundation at (616) 454-1751.
