Let's go back a step though.  Let's talk about the Community Foundation.  It was formed in 1961 by local residents to improve the quality of life in their communities.  It's a publicly supported community endowment and the Foundation works with donors, grantees, advisers and communities to identify and support the issues that shape our area.  That being said, there's not much more worth investing in than our young people.  Kids from the Muskegon area are awesome....and the idea behind the scholarships is that after their education, they will come back to Muskegon and apply the education that they got to a bigger, brighter and better future for the area.

The Community Foundation doesn't award scholarships based on need alone.  They look at factors like academic achievement, community involvement, extra-curricular activities and financial need.  Many of the scholarships were created by donors for specific fields of study or to particular colleges.

Scholarships range from $500 to $25,000 and will be awarded in the schools in the Spring of 2017.  There's a streamlined application process, it's all done online and only three steps to apply are needed to make the process easy on families to begin the process.  every application is reviewed and then paired with the best fitting scholarship sources.

It's easy to sit and write about it, but it's much more enjoyable to sit down and talk about this awesome opportunity to our area students and Janelle Mair who is the Director of Scholarships and Grant Making for the Community Foundation found a couple minutes to do just that.  Take a listen to our chat.






Believe me when I tell you.... there is no more important investment in our community than our kids.  They are the future leaders...business people....residents....everything.  The generosity of many is reflected in the work of the Community Foundation and they directly reflect the pride the community has in our next generation.  Are you ready to start the application process?  Click on the image below and let's go!
