Since 1986, the Community Foundation has been the leading resource for scholarship funding in Frederick County - managing more than 250 scholarship funds. 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. These thoughtful donors are creating a better future for Frederick County by financially assisting students who are pursuing a post-secondary education.

All scholarships for the 2016-17 academic year have been allocated. The scholarship application is available in the spring of each year. Please check this webpage in January 2017 for specific dates and details regarding scholarships supporting the 2017-18 academic year.
