Scholarships

The Community Foundation is honored to have a variety of scholarship funds established by individuals and groups of donors for the purposes of helping young people further their education. Several funds were created in memory of a loved one or an inspiring colleague. Others are given to support a certain community or by alumni to support students graduating from their high school. Each is unique in its origin, its criteria for selection and its goals for awardees. ECCF works with donors to find the right combination for their charitable interests.

ECCF awards annual scholarships to assist students with the costs of secondary or post secondary education, or for camperships or individual achievement. The Foundation does not accept scholarship applications, but works with scholarship selection committees that screen and recommend candidates to the ECCF Board of Trustees for approval.
