Crown Point Community Foundation Awards 99 Scholarships, Totaling Over $265,000


Students who plan on pursuing higher education were given some additional financial assistance this year from the Crown Point Community Foundation. The foundation awarded 99 scholarships totaling over $265,000. These funds were made available through the generosity of the foundation’s donors and its scholarship funds.

The scholarship program at the Community Foundation continues to grow and have a positive impact on our community’s future leaders. As Nelson Mandela said, “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.”

A scholarship committee reviewed the applications, interviewed the students and selected the recipients. The scholarship review team consists of foundation board members and community volunteers.

“A scholarship fund at the Community Foundation is a way for a donor to connect to the future,” said Mary Nielsen, President of the Crown Point Community Foundation. Many scholarship funds are established to memorialize or honor an individual or family member.
