As the costs of higher education rise, scholarship support becomes increasingly valuable. The Madison County Community Foundation, community partners, and thoughtful contributors are committed to helping Madison County students pursue their education. We work together to manage scholarship funds that provide various levels of support to help students achieve their educational goals.Scholarships are grants generated from the income earned from funds administered by the Madison County Community Foundation on behalf of donors. Because grants are determined based on a percentage of income earned, some fund awards equate to unusual dollar amounts and can vary from $500 to much more. More than half of our scholarships are between $500 and $1,000.

Available Scholarships

Madison County Community Foundation offers a wide variety of scholarships each year, ranging from the Lilly Endowment College Scholarship to memorial scholarships. Each scholarship will have criteria based on the donor's wishes. Applications are only available during open submission cycles for each.
