Thanks to the vision and generosity of many donors, the Cleveland Foundation offers more than 60 scholarships. While most are for graduating high school seniors attending institutions of higher learning, others enable individuals to pursue vocational training and professional development opportunities.  

The Cleveland Foundation has partnered with College Now Greater Cleveland on the administration of its scholarship funds, expanding the availability of services like mentoring to support students along every step of their higher education journey. Check out the listing of available scholarships.  

Applications for the 2024-25 school year must be submitted through College Now’s application site. Applications for Cleveland Foundation scholarships will open in mid-December. Most applications will be due Wednesday, March 13, 2024, at 7pm. Learn more and apply now!

If you were awarded a scholarship directly from the Cleveland Foundation in 2021 and still have renewal eligibility, you will receive an email in early December with instructions to renew your scholarship for the 2024-25 academic year. You will need to complete and return the 2024-25 Renewal Verification Form with your Fall 2023 Grade Report and 2024-25 FAFSA SAR by April 1, 2024
