The Grand Rapids Community Foundation's Reach for Your Goal Scholarship is offered to a student who is a resident of Kent County and a high school senior who has been accepted into an accredited Michigan trade school, college or university. Eligible applicants must demonstrate financial need and have a 3.0 GPA. Scholarship recipients are selected by the Grand Rapids Community Foundation (GRCF) and applicants follow the GRCF process. Applications run from December until the due date, and dollar amounts will vary.
By connecting people, their passions and our region’s resources, Grand Rapids Community Foundation and our partners work toward an inclusive and equitable West Michigan. Over the last century, the Community Foundation has used the tools of philanthropy to respond to community needs. Today, to carry out our North Star and overcome racial, social and economic inequities, we must respond with intention and care. Our partners inspire, motivate and guide our work.
