Scholarship

The Scranton Area Community Foundation is home to over 50 donor named scholarships, and each has its own eligibility and criteria requirements. Many scholarships target students graduating from specific high schools, some for specific areas of study and others for financial need. Each scholarship is unique according to its donor's wishes, and each offers the opportunity to earn a scholarship for your education.

To obtain an application for any of the scholarships listed alphabetically below, please contact your high school guidance office, college financial aid office, or other organization listed as part of the Application information that is provided at the end of each scholarship description below.
