Our community’s families are keenly aware why scholarships are more important than ever. By taking some of the financial pressure off of students and families, enable greater success in college and technical school, helping deserving students who want to graduate with their degree or certificate and give back to society.

“That personal scholarship support does more than pay some bills says Suzanne Lee, President, Community Foundation for the Twin Tiers. It also instills a greater sense of belonging-and motivation-to make it through their program. Scholarships are more important than ever from a financial perspective- and CFTT’s program supported through the generosity of local donors is crucial to the students and our community.”

Community Foundation Scholarships can be established by individual donors, corporations, and are often in honor or in memory of a loved one.

“We are grateful for the many donors who have established scholarship funds and support students educational dreams.” Said Suzanne Lee
