The Grand Rapids Community Foundation's Donald M. Wells Scholarship is offered to a senior or graduate of Central High School who is pursuing undergraduate studies at GRCC, University of Chicago, or University of Michigan. Applicants must demonstrate financial need and have at least a 2.5 GPA. 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.
