Community Foundation Scholarships

The Community Foundation of St. Clair County administers a variety of scholarship funds - both traditional scholarships and nontraditional - such as the Come Home Award. 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 with the expandable boxes 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 priority deadline of mid-March.

The Community Foundation also manages scholarship funds for the SC4 Foundation. More information regarding those funds may be found here

Life Needs Assistance Application

The Community Foundation has expanded our Life Needs Program to reach more college students who are not already current or former scholarship recipients.

Our Life needs program is need-based support that assists students with removing unexpected financial barriers while completing their college degree, such as transportation, groceries, or housing. Eligible applicants must be residents of St. Clair County and are currently attending a college anywhere in America.

Applicants are evaluated on a case-by-case basis and support is not guaranteed. We have multiple sources of funding, however, some funds have specific requirements for eligibility. For instance, the Douglas & Elda Webb Fund supports life needs only for graduates of Port Huron Schools.

Completion Testing & Licensing

Mini-Grant Program

This is a need-based financial support program to assist with educational expenses that are not covered by state, federal or institutional aid. Requests will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis for students who have completed all of the required curriculum, who are about to graduate, or who have recently graduated, and now need a mini-grant to help with final testing, certification, licensing, and other requirements that are necessary in addition to degree completion to enter the workforce.
