The First Community Foundation Partnership of Pennsylvania (FCFP) works to create scholarship funds that will benefit graduating seniors and non-traditional students. Endowed scholarship funds at the Community Foundation are created by gifts from individuals, families and organizations. These gifts provide income to award scholarships every year to different students. In many instances, scholarships are awarded based on pre-determined criteria that are reflective of the personal values and interests of those who establish the funds.
Today’s students are tomorrow’s leaders. Every year, our scholarships support more than 100 area high-schoolers pursuing higher education. This training paves the way for first jobs and future careers, creating citizens who help our region flourish. Scholarships are awarded based on location, merit, need, and other special criteria. Eligibility and criteria vary by scholarship.
