Community Foundation Scholarships

The Community Foundation of St. Clair County administers a variety of scholarship funds - both traditional scholarships and nontraditional - such as the Come Home Award. The scholarship funds were established by individuals and organizations wanting to assist students in obtaining a college or vocational education and each have their own set of specific criteria.

The scholarships listed below with the expandable boxes are all traditional scholarships. These are awarded at the ‘front-end’ of your college education and paid directly to your college or university. Traditional scholarships are available beginning in early January of each year with a priority deadline of mid-March.

Who is eligible?

  • HS/GED grads of all ages & academic levels
  • Incoming freshmen or upper classmen
  • Non-traditional/returning students

  • Colleges/Universities
  • Skilled Trade & Vocational Training Centers

Life Needs Assistance Application

The Community Foundation has expanded our Life Needs Program to reach more college students who are not already current or former scholarship recipients.

Our Life needs program is need-based support that assists students with removing unexpected financial barriers while completing their college degree, such as transportation, groceries or housing. Eligible applicants must be residents of St. Clair County and are currently attending a college anywhere in America.

Applicants are evaluated on a case-by-case basis and support is not guaranteed. We have multiple sources of funding, however, some funds have specific requirements for eligibility. For instance, the Douglas & Elda Webb Fund supports life needs only for graduates of Port Huron Schools.

If you have any questions, please contact Heather at            or 810-984-4761.
