Thanks to the generosity of the donors in this region, the Community Foundation of Western Massachusetts administers, through one centralized application process, scholarship and loan funds.

These scholarship and interest-free student loan funds support students seeking access to the opportunities offered by higher education and play a substantial role in providing an educated citizenry. Some of the funds help students from a particular school or area; others provide financial assistance to those pursuing a specific field of study; still others assist students that are most in need. Scholarship and interest-free loan awards are reviewed by volunteer committees and approved by the Trustees. Awards are made subject to availability and to the policies of the Community Foundation. These policies are available for review upon request.

To apply, in addition to the application, available from the menu link on this page on January 1st, you must arrange to have your school send your most recent official academic transcript to the Community Foundation.
