2020ScholarshipBookCoverBay Area Community Foundation is pleased to announce that 231 Bay and Arenac county residents will receive a total of more than $300K in scholarships for continuing education. This includes graduating high school seniors, current college students, students pursuing skilled trades or certificates, and adults returning to school.

In lieu of a scholarship reception this year, we are celebrating these students on Facebook during the week of June 1 – June 5. You can participate in this celebration by congratulating the students at www.facebook.com/BayAreaCommunityFoundation.

Thanks to Foundation’s generous donors, combined with the $166,000 awarded this year from the Bay Commitment Scholarship for first-generation college students, Bay Area Community Foundation has been able to award more than $460,000 to Bay and Arenac County students in 2020.

“For students, an education means more job opportunity. And for our community, a more skilled workforce means a more vibrant local economy,” said Diane Fong, president & CEO of Bay Area Community Foundation. “Bay Area Community Foundation will continue to work alongside donors in our community to transform the lives of our students and the future of the Bay Area.”
