Erie County Community Foundation Scholarships


Scholarship Value: $3,000
Awards Available: 40
Award Deadline: March 1, 2022

As part of our support for education, we administer scholarship funds established by individuals and organizations. Whether it's medical school, journalism, architecture, ministry, nursing, or engineering, our scholarship donors make pursuing a career more attainable for all our high school and professional school students.

A large variety of scholarships are available and are based on a field of study, merit, financial need, sports, and community involvement. By completing our Universal Grant Application, our system will automatically match your skills and financial need with the criteria for each scholarship. This eliminates the need to complete multiple scholarship applications.
