The Scholarship Foundation of St. Joseph County gives renewable scholarships and a mentor to St. Joseph County students who need financial assistance to pay for college. Since 1958 we have awarded more than 4,600 scholarships to local students who are studying at the college or university of their choice. Awards are based on academic performance and financial need. Our students come from all area schools or may be home schooled.
This year we are supporting 113 students in 44 schools across the country.
We also award scholarships for older students who may be working full time and need to complete a certification or Associates Degree to enhance their job skills.
