Any area students interested in pursuing their education during the 2024-2025 school year are encouraged to apply for scholarships through the Grand Rapids Area Community Foundation.

All students, both traditional and nontraditional, are encouraged to apply, as there is a wide variety of scholarships available.  The application period runs from January 1, 2024, to midnight on March 1, 2024.  Grand Rapids Community Foundation Executive Director, Mindy Nuhring, states, “We have over 100 scholarships worth over $250,000 to award to area students.  Over the next month we will be adding a few items to our website Scholarship page to provide more information about scholarships. Students need to fill out just one application on our website ( for Scholarships) for all available scholarships. Also, I’d like to give a big thank you to the donors who make these scholarships possible!”

Scholarships are one way that the Grand Rapids Area Community Foundation has been connecting donors’ charitable intentions to community needs for almost 30 years to make our Greater Itasca Area a better place to live.
