The Greenville Area Community Foundation (GACF) awards over $236,000 in scholarships each year to nearly 90 students to help with the cost of pursuing a post-secondary education.  And now with the addition of the Stanley & Blanche Ash Education Fund, the number of students and amount of scholarships awarded yearly will rise dramatically in the years to come.

These scholarships are made possible through the generous donations of individuals and families who have created permanent endowment funds at the Greenville Area Community Foundation, and its affiliate funds – Lakeview Area Community Fund, and Montcalm Panhandle Community Fund.

Scholarships awarded through the Greenville Area Community Foundation and its affiliates, are presented during the Belding, Carson City-Crystal, Central Montcalm, Greenville, Lakeview, Montabella, Tri County and Vestaburg High School award assemblies to graduating seniors each Spring.

GACF and its affiliates currently offer 48 scholarship funds, each with unique criteria.  To view a listing and description of scholarship funds offered for each school, please see the Scholarships by School tab above.

Interested students should see their high school counseling office for an application, more information and deadlines.  Completed applications must be submitted to your counseling office.  Applications will not be accepted at the GACF office.
