Starke County Scholarships

Thanks for our generous donors, we awarded nearly $58,000 in scholarship last year! 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.

Preschool Scholarships

We partner 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 by providing need-based scholarships.

“I am always impressed by the quality of the scholarship applications we review. The next generation is certainly on their way to achieving great things.”
