Local students benefit from Community Foundation scholarships

Posted on September 6th, 2019

As classrooms around Emmet County fill with students, 31 local high school graduates are starting or continuing college with $38,500 worth of assistance and the support of their community. Since the establishment of the first scholarship fund in 1994, the Petoskey-Harbor Springs Area Community Foundation has awarded more than $580,000 to students to pursue higher education after high school.

The Community Foundation’s 24 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 Petoskey-Harbor Springs Area 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.
