Scholarships are a critical component for many students to pursue a higher education and our community’s ability to have a strong workforce.  

Austin Community Foundation's scholarship program provides additional opportunities to community members pursuing their educational goals. Since 1996, the Foundation has awarded $6.5 million in scholarships. Each year, we award approximately 400 scholarships totaling more than $500,000. A majority of our scholarships support students from Central Texas or students at local educational institutions.
