Scholarships Overview

College scholarships can make the difference in a young person’s ability to pursue a lifelong dream.

The Yampa Valley Community Foundation is a valuable resource for people who want to help local students attain their educational goals through scholarship funds.

Our scholarship funds are created by families who wish to memorialize a loved one, professional organizations that want to encourage a certain field of study, others who want to extend a helping hand for college-bound students and those seeking professional development in the trades.

Giving to a scholarship fund helps a local student pursue their educational goals. It’s also easy to set up a scholarship fund to honor or inspire someone to pursue a specific field of interest. Get started today and make someone’s educational dreams come true.

A reminder from YVCF:

There are many scholarship search services available. As a rule, we do not recommend paying a fee for any of them. Scholarship search services that offer a money-back guarantee typically require the student to prove they applied to each and every source given to them and were denied. Often this is impossible because some scholarships are no longer in existence. There are a number of scholarship search services on the Internet that a student can use free of charge. One is FastWeb.
