Scholarship Funds support undergraduate and graduate education, professional development and other educational opportunities. Donors may define eligibility criteria, the selection committee, the school, and the field of study.
More than 75 Scholarship Funds exist through the DeKalb County Community Foundation. The majority of these scholarships are administered through local high schools. Please contact a school counselor at your local high school for application information.
Scholarship Funds administered through the Community Foundation include the CHS Elburn Scholarship, Palmer Family Music Education Scholarship, Donald and Patricia Pritchard Scholarship, Renaissance Scholarship, Spinoso Masters Scholarship, Jeffrey A. Trail Scholarship, and the Harold P. Wells Scholarship. Additional information on these five scholarships can be found on the scholarship opportunities page.
To discuss your charitable interests or to give back to the community by establishing a Fund of your own, please contact Executive Director Dan Templin at 815-748-5383 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
