The Kalamazoo Community Foundation awarded more than $1 million in scholarships to 350 area students over the summer. The scholarships have a variety of eligibility criteria, with awards ranging from $500 to $7,500.
The Community Foundation has awarded more than $28 million in scholarships to local students over the years. "We greatly appreciate our donors who make these scholarships possible and the volunteers who serve on the many committees to recommend the scholarship awards," says Nancy Timmons, scholarship manager.
According to Timmons, the next application due date — for the Clarence L. Remynse Scholarship — is December 1. "It’s very important for applicants to follow the application instructions," says Timmons. "Each year we have students who miss out because their application was not complete."
Remynse scholarships range up to $7,500, depending on financial need, and are renewable. The Remynse is for high school seniors who plan to attend school full time and pursue a degree in business, education, engineering, math, psychology, science, pre-law or pre-med studies.
