This year, over 160 scholarships from local schools, businesses, clubs, organizations, and individuals are available. Humboldt Area Foundation & Wild Rivers Community Foundation scholarship funds reflect new and established donors, alike. Many funds are over thirty years old, while others are as new as a few weeks old. Approximately $750,000 will be awarded through these scholarships. Current scholarship listings and the Humboldt Area Foundation & Wild Rivers Community Foundation’s Universal Application for scholarships can be found at ScholarshipFinder.org.
Scholarships support students throughout the 2022-2023 academic school year and are offered to students pursuing any form of postsecondary education, including: associate degrees; bachelor’s degrees; master’s degrees; and degrees and certifications from a career, vocational or technical school. While most scholarships are primarily intended for and offered to students in the Humboldt Area Foundation & Wild Rivers Community Foundation service regions, some scholarships are available to national or global applicants.
“We’re thrilled to launch the Humboldt Area Foundation & Wild Rivers Community Foundation Universal Scholarship Application for the 2022 scholarship cycle! The Universal Application is an easy and simple way to connect current and prospective students to local funding opportunities, through a single application process. Many of our scholarship funds have been in existence for over 30 years, providing long-term support to our region’s youth. It is a privilege to continue providing support for the success of thriving youth and families in the service region,” says Sydney Morrone, Grants & Scholarships Manager for the Humboldt Area Foundation & Wild Rivers Community Foundation.
