Centre County Community Foundation awards more than $120,000 in scholarships

This is part of a weekly series that highlights a grant provided by the Foundation.

Though the ink on their diplomas has barely had time to dry, many recent graduates of Centre County high schools are already excitedly looking forward to starting their college careers.

But they’re probably not looking forward to paying for tuition, room and board, and textbooks.

Luckily, for many of them, scholarship money from the Centre County Community Foundation will ease that burden.

This year, the Foundation is awarding a total of more than $120,000 in scholarships to about 200 local students – that means about a sixth of the students who graduated from Centre County’s five public schools received scholarship money from the Foundation.

We wish good luck to all of our scholarship recipients. And we hope this money gives you more time to use your calculator for your math homework, rather than for worrying over your bills.
