Since 1985, the Bay Area Community Foundation has been awarding scholarships to students who live in Bay County and surrounding counties. The scholarships are awarded through donor sponsored endowment funds established by the Bay Area Community Foundation. These funds are created by families, civic organizations, and businesses in the area.
The Foundation’s first endowed Scholarship Fund started in 1984. The first scholarship was awarded in 1985 for $300 to a Pinconning High School Senior. Since then, the Foundation has awarded over $3 million to more than 4,000 students.
Applications for the 2017-2018 college year will be available online from December 1, 2016 – March 6, 2017.
