Central Indiana Community Foundation (CICF) and its affiliates, The Indianapolis Foundation and Legacy Fund, serving Hamilton County, awarded 156 scholarships totaling over $1.2 million for the 2018-2019 academic year. Recipients received up to $40,000 and were chosen by multiple committees comprised of donors and community volunteers. A total of 39 scholarship funds created by donors at CICF and its affiliates made awards.
Scholarship programs are an important piece of CICF’s commitment to increase students’ chances of academic and financial success. By 2020, 60 percent of all jobs will require post-secondary education or training. Knowing this, CICF has expanded its focus from colleges and universities to include technical, vocational, and trade schools. Scholarships are available to current high schoolers and college students, as well as those not currently enrolled in a program.
