Scholarships

Many donors have chosen to honor their loved ones, alma maters, communities or professions by establishing scholarship endowments. Our scholarship funds help students who graduate from high schools in our county continue their education at the undergraduate or graduate level. Some of our awards are for specific studies, such as business administration, education (teacher/counselors), engineering (geology/petroleum engineering), journalism/English/writing, math/accounting/business administration, music, nursing/medicine and science. The Foundation appreciates the willingness of our donors to help with the education of tomorrow’s leaders.  All scholarship applications must be completed on-line, click here to begin the application process.
