Because people cared
The 451 scholarship funds at the Foundation were created by generous donors who wanted to help the next generation of New Hampshire students reach their full potential.
Promise + need = scholarship
We are committed to finding and funding the most promising students with the greatest financial need. Scholarships are awarded to students for certificates, licensing programs, apprenticeships, two- and four-year degree programs and graduate school.

Please see below for types of programs covered, and apply using ScholarshipSource, our single, online application. Students are matched automatically with all scholarship opportunities for which they qualify. Many awards are renewable for each year that a student is in school.
