The Richmond Community Foundation is now accepting applications for its 2023 high school scholarships. Eligibility is open to local students who are graduating this year and who plan on pursuing a post-secondary education.

In 2022, the foundation awarded $34,600 in scholarships to 38 students. This year, again, dozens of scholarships are available across multiple areas of study, from academics to apprenticeship programs to the performing arts.

“Our goal, always, is to support students on whatever path their education takes,” says Ed Gavsie, executive director of the foundation. “As we diversify our scholarship funds, we’re better equipped to help students achieve their educational and professional goals.”

Along with field of study, applications are considered based on a student’s community involvement and financial need. Many students will be eligible and are encouraged to apply for multiple scholarships.

“Each of our scholarships has different criteria, and every year, there are students who emerge as the top candidate for several scholarships,” says Gavsie. “At the same time, we review each application on its own merits, and consider a student’s individual circumstances when making our decisions. For all students, our advice, simply, is to apply.”

Founded in 1990, the Richmond Community Foundation manages over 50 forever funds, from which it awards grants and scholarships to local non-profit organizations and students.
