YCF offers a variety of scholarships to help students acquire a post-secondary education. Some scholarships are designated for graduating seniors of certain schools or those who reside in certain counties. Others are awarded for specific fields of study such as music, veterinary practice or engineering. Currently, most scholarships are based in part on financial need, academic achievement, and leadership qualities.
Scholarships range from $500 up to $20,000 over four years to qualifying applicants. Two charitable, non-profit foundations, the Community Foundation of North Central West Virginia (CFNCWV) and the Greater Morgantown Community Trust (GMCT), have combined into a larger, more effective organization named Your Community Foundation of North Central West Virginia (YCF). YCF manages assets of more than $20 million and administers more than 150 endowment funds across North Central West Virginia.
