Scholarships

Since 1986, the Community Foundation has been the leading resource for scholarship funding in Frederick County. Generous donors make these scholarships possible for many different reasons. Some donors want to support students aspiring to careers similar to the ones that they had. Other donors create scholarships to "pay back" the community that has given generously to them. Still others start memorial funds to honor the legacies of their deceased loved ones. Regardless of the reason for starting their scholarship funds, these thoughtful donors have shown their commitment to creating a better future for Frederick County by financially assisting students who are pursuing a post-secondary education.

2015-2016 Scholarship Recipients: Your scholarship checks will be mailed to your post-secondary educational institution in July.

The scholarship application for the 2016-2017 academic year will be available beginning March 30, 2016 - April 30, 2016. Please note the new application dates. Additional details will be posted here beginning January 2016.
