Scholarships make a tremendous difference on a young person’s life. The immediate impact is the reward of having been disciplined, having planned to step into adulthood with an eye toward an education that readies them for life, and recognizing that strangers believed so much in them that they devoted hard-earned income to support their education.
Scholarships relieve the financial stress up front and when student loans start coming due.
Annually, the ACCF awards more than $300,000 in scholarships to Allegan County graduates. Scholarships for math, horticulture, engineering, academics, skilled trades, community service and musical pursuits are just a few of the scholarships that our local graduates have access to.
