Heritage Academic Scholarship

Education is vital to the growth and future of every community. Because of this, the Saginaw Community Founda­tion administers a variety of scholarship programs for high school, community college, university and vocational stu­dents. Each year on November 1, our single, online scholarship application goes live with completed applications due submitted online by February 15 the following year.
Since awarding our first $500 scholarship in 1987, the Saginaw Community Foundation has awarded more than $5 million in scholarships.
These scholarships are possible because of the generosity of our fund donors – including individuals, families, civic groups and businesses.

Community volunteers of all ages and backgrounds review a packet of applications from students they do not know. These volunteers score the students in 10 different areas – such as leadership, volunteer service, extracurricular activities and essays – according to the provided guidelines. To assure fairness, every student is reviewed by five different volunteers and their score is averaged. These scores determine the student that will be awarded each scholarship.

Saginaw Community Foundation will offer an opportunity for those applying for scholarships to discuss their application one-on-one with a Foundation staff member.
