Young woman in classThe Community Foundation of St. Clair County administers a variety of scholarship funds- both traditional scholarships and nontraditional - Come Home Award and Complete Your Degree. The scholarship funds were established by individuals and organizations wanting to assist students in obtaining a college or vocational education and each have their own set of specific criteria.

The scholarships listed below are all traditional scholarships. These are awarded at the ‘front-end’ of your college education and paid directly to your college or university. Traditional scholarships are available beginning in early January of each year with a deadline of March 17.

The SC4 Foundation scholarship funds are now also administered by the Community Foundation. Students may apply for those using the same online application portal. A full listing of funds may be found here.

We also offer a Come Home Award. These scholarships are awarded once you have completed your degree as an incentive to come back to St. Clair County to work and live. Come Home Award applications are accepted year-round.
