Scholarships (U-Z)

The Scranton Area Community Foundation administers over 50 scholarships. Some of the funds help students from a particular school or area; others provide financial assistance to those pursuing a specific field of study, and some assist students that are most in need. Students interested in one or more of our scholarships can create an account through our online portal to complete an eligibility questionnaire. After completing the eligibility questionnaire, the student will be directed to the scholarship application(s) they qualify for.

To learn more about scholarship opportunities, you may want to reach out to your school’s guidance or financial aid department. If you still have questions, please contact us!

Questions about applying for a scholarship? Please contact Cathy Fitzpatrick, Grants & Scholarships Manager, at cathyf@safdn.org or (570) 347-6203 extension 301.
