Scholarship benefits
Several $5,000 scholarships will be awarded. The scholarship(s) are intended to defray a broad range of educational expenses such as tuition, room and board, books, computers and the like.

Please note that:
  • The Foundation will make payments for educational expenses directly to the college/university selected by the award recipients, with the qualifying provision that it must be a 501 (c)(3), U.S. chartered, degree-granting institution. Should the college/university cease to be a qualified 501 (c)(3), United Way cannot disburse funds unless proven status is reinstated.
  • Scholarship monies will be paid to the student’s selected educational institution once The Foundation has received official notification from the institution that the student has matriculated. The student should ensure their chosen institution has sent official notification of his/her matriculation to the United Way Foundation as soon as practical, in order to receive scholarship funds.
