The Public Education Foundation administers a variety of scholarships to help students pursue higher educational goals. In many cases, the scholarships make the college and university experience accessible to students who might not otherwise dream of a college education. The Public Education Foundation offers more than 300 different scholarship opportunities for students to attend both in-state and out-of-state schools.
Our scholarship donors are corporations, associations, organizations, foundations and individuals who want to create a brighter future by encouraging education. Each donor has the opportunity to determine the criteria of their scholarship and reserves the right to play a role as a committee member in the selection of recipients. The Foundation provides professional assistance in establishing the scholarship funds including advertising and promotion, clerical support, and an awards recognition luncheon. The luncheon gives the donors and scholarship recipients the opportunity to meet if they haven’t already done so during the selection process.
To date, the Foundation has awarded more than 7,700 scholarships totaling nearly $16 million.
