College graduatesSaginaw Community Foundation (SCF) is now accepting scholarship applications. Each year, SCF awards hundreds of scholarships to post-secondary education students (community college, university, nontraditional and vocational students). Applications for 2016 scholarships are due Feb. 15, 2016.

Many of the scholarships offered are awarded to multiple students and students can individually earn more than one award.

“Education is vital to the growth and future of every community. Scholarships can help people in our region obtain a degree, certificate or other training that will help further their aspirations and goals,” said Reneé Johnston, president and CEO at the Foundation.

 

Earlier this year, a total of 250 high school, college and nontraditional students were awarded 324 scholarships at the Saginaw Community Foundation’s annual Excellence in Education event. A total of $355,800 was awarded to recipients, with an average award of $1,411.

 

Since 1987, the foundation has awarded more than $4 million to students to help them achieve their educational goals.

 

“People traditionally think scholarships are just for high school seniors,” said LeeAnn Martuch, program officer at the foundation. “Here at Saginaw Community Foundation, we offer scholarships for all types of individuals – from vocational students, displaced workers, active or inactive military, a single parent just returning to school, or a student working full-time and attending college part-time.”
