Grand Rapids Community Foundation awards hundreds of scholarships annually primarily to Kent County students bound for or in college, or those pursuing a technical career. To be eligible for a Grand Rapids Scholarship Association scholarship, students must be a resident of Kent County (3-year minimum) who will be attending Aquinas, Calvin, Cornerstone, Davenport, GRCC, GVSU, or Kendall. Applicants must have financial need and a 3.0 minimum GPA. 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.
