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.

This comprehensive chart of each scholarship the Madison County Community Foundation administers will serve as the starting point in your application process. Depending on fund availability, most, if not all, of these scholarships are offered each year. Each scholarship will require a separate application. Basic qualifications criteria specific to each scholarship are provided on the "Scholarships Available" list , which you can view by clicking the button below.
