Because people cared
The 429 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 professional certificate programs, licensure, two- and four-year undergraduate degrees and graduate school.

As a youngster in Afghanistan and Pakistan, Hussain Amiri collected and sold firewood and made carpets to help support his family, then studied at night. After enduring war and trauma, his family arrived in Concord with only what they carried and very little idea of what to expect. Now, he is studying at Plymouth State University for a career in computer science and working as a case manager at Building Community in NH, helping refugees as they build new lives in New Hampshire.
