Scholarship Awards

Since 2012, Hillsboro Community Foundation scholarship funds have awarded a total of $114,000 in scholarships to 80 deserving high school graduating seniors.  Donors have established 10 scholarship funds to date, amounting to over $420,000 in endowed assets. 

The scholarship funds reward general scholarship and citizenship, as well as support students interested in specific areas of further study, such as math, journalism, and vocational studies.

Student applications are evaluated in the spring of each year by a review group for each scholarship.  The group typically consists of the donor or sponsor, a school official, and other community members.
