Miami County Scholarships

The Miami County Community Foundation (MCCF) has more than 30 scholarship funds available from which we awarded more than $140,000 in 2018. Scholarship dollars are varied and cover a wide range of criteria. Whether a graduating senior, current college student, or non-traditional student there are scholarships available. MCCF endowment scholarships typically range from $200 to $2,000.

Back Home Again in Indiana Scholarship

This scholarship is for non-traditional students. Qualified recipients include adult students who wish to re-enter the job market, advance in their current field, or enter the job market for the first time after hardship circumstances, such as divorce, health complications involving family members, loss of employment, or other obstacles. This scholarship also supports students who are invested in their communities as well as working towards a college degree. Deadline for the application is July 5, 2019.

Preschool Scholarships

The NICF is in the third year of a partnership with local preschools, schools and other organizations,to offer preschool scholarships for the children of Fulton, Miami and Starke Counties.

The goal of the program is to make one year of preschool education affordable to every child in our counties. Need-based scholarships are available to families of four-year-old children.

“I’m impressed with how many students we help each year. The Community Foundation is an amazing asset for Miami County.”
