Community Foundation of the Central Blue Ridge Press Release

The Community Foundation of the Central Blue Ridge is currently accepting scholarship applications from seniors attending high schools in Staunton, Waynesboro, and Augusta County. Additionally, adult students are encouraged to apply for select scholarships.

The Community Foundation administers nearly 30 scholarship funds that will provide over $50,000 this year. Each scholarship has its own specific purpose, selection and eligibility criteria. For information regarding eligibility or to apply, please visit www.communityfoundationcbr.org. Scholarship applications are due March 19, 2014.

“We are very proud to make available a large number of college scholarships for graduating seniors and adult students,” said Dan Layman, CEO of the Community Foundation. “As the cost of a college education continues to rise, it becomes increasingly important that hard-working students have access to the support they need to fulfill their dreams and to limit student loans. We have many local donors, each very passionate about education, to thank for these scholarships. We continue to encourage others to follow their example by establishing their own scholarship funds with the Community Foundation.”
