The Grand Rapids Community Foundation's Thomas D. Coffield Scholarship is offered to a student who is a senior at Central High School entering a 2 or 4-year accredited college/university. Applicants must have a 2.5 minimum GPA and demonstrate financial need. Scholarship recipients are selected by the Grand Rapids Community Foundation (GRCF) and applicants follow the GRCF process. 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.
