The Gerald W. & Edith F. Wallace Scholarship will assist students with a physical disability who are from North Dakota farm families. First priority is for students from Burke County, North Dakota. The award amount is based on the student's needs and available funds. The fund was established in 1993 by Mr. Wallace shortly after the death of his wife of nearly 50 years. Mr. Wallace was one of those North Dakotans who, although he had left the state many years ago, never forgot his roots here in North Dakota.
The North Dakota Community Foundation was formed with that purpose in mind - to create an easy way for North Dakotans to help their neighbors and friends, now and in the future, through charitable giving and promoting philanthropy here at home. We currently administer over 750 charitable funds, including 69 different community foundations in the state. Our mission is to improve the quality of life for North Dakota's citizens through charitable giving and promoting philanthropy.
