Congrats to our 2021 Scholarship recipients

Posted on May 27th, 2021

This graduation season, the Petoskey-Harbor Springs Area Community Foundation is pleased to announce that 41 local high school graduates are starting or continuing college with $61,000 worth of assistance and the support of their community. The students represent six area high schools: Alanson, Harbor Springs, Harbor Light Christian, Mackinaw City, Pellston and Petoskey. Since the establishment of the first scholarship fund in 1994, we have awarded nearly $700,000 to students to pursue higher education after high school.

Our 27 scholarship funds are made possible by forward-thinking donors who generously support students entering the skilled trades, community colleges and four-year colleges and universities to help ease their financial burdens.   

The Community Foundation’s mission is to improve the quality of life for all people in Emmet County by connecting donors with community needs; building a permanent source of charitable funds to serve our area; addressing a broad range of community issues through innovative grantmaking; and promoting philanthropy and active citizenship. 

Congratulations to all of our 2021 Scholarship recipients!
