High school and college students can now apply for scholarships from the Quad Cities Community Foundation


The Quad Cities Community Foundation is proud to announce that applications for 2019 scholarships are now available. Forty different scholarships will be awarded to 80 new students this spring, totaling more than $250,000 in awards.

Students can apply online right now at www.QCCommunityFoundation.org/scholarships.

Students can now take a quiz through the online application system which will tell them what scholarships they can apply for. Students can then browse the individual scholarship opportunities for which they are eligible to review specific criteria, award amounts, and requirements.

“Every year, the Quad Cities Community Foundation has the distinct privilege and honor to partner with donors to support the educational ambitions of our region’s students,” said Lisa Stachula, grantmaking specialist. “Scholarships are available for all ages and career goals, from high school seniors preparing for college to non-traditional students returning to school. We also have multiple scholarships for people interested in skilled trades and STEM careers.”
