College scholarships can make the difference in a young person’s ability to pursue a lifelong dream—and our community’s ability to have the workforce we need.
Austin Community Foundation is a valuable resource for people who want to help local students attain their educational goals through scholarship funds. Each year, we award about 400 scholarships totaling more than $500,000—with more than half funded through The Highland Lakes Legacy Fund for students in Marble Falls and other rural Central Texas communities.
Creating a Scholarship Fund
Our scholarship funds are created by families who wish to memorialize a loved one, professional organizations that want to encourage a certain field of study and others who want to extend a helping hand for college-bound students.
You can give to a scholarship fund to help a student pursue his or her educational goals. It's also easy to set up a scholarship fund to honor or inspire someone to pursue a specific field of interest. Get started today and make someone’s educational dreams come true.
