The Grand Rapids Community Foundation's Walter C. Winchester Scholarship is offered to a high school senior graduating from a Grand Rapids Public High School. Applicants must demonstrate need and have at least a minimum GPA of a 3.3. Scholarship recipients are selected by the Grand Rapids Community Foundation (GRCF) and applicants follow the GRCF process. Dollar amounts will vary. Applications run from December until the due date.
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.
