The Foundation's 93 year-old Student Aid Program reaches back to 1923, when the first student loan fund was established at the Foundation.

From that point on, our charitable community has come together under the Foundation's guidance with the common goal of helping local students attend college - more than 14,500 students have been helped since the program's inception.  In the 2015-2016 school year alone, the Foundation's approximately 120 student aid funds provided 554 awards totaling over $933,000 in student aid.

This longstanding tradition of generous donors supporting aspiring students also reflects the collective belief that higher education will lead to a stronger, and more tolerant and vibrant community, state, nation and ultimately, world.  Please let us know how we may be of assistance to you in your own educational or philanthropic pursuits.

The Foundation is no longer accepting student aid applications for the 2016-2017 school year.
  Applications will be available for the 2017-2018 academic year beginning January 1, 2017.   Click here to be directed to the Student Aid section of the Foundation's Web site.
