Founded in 1978, the Greater Worcester Community Foundation's scholarship program has become the largest source of scholarship support for students from the Worcester County area.

We work with donors to create scholarship funds that support college-bound high school graduates. Since its founding in 1978:

The majority of our scholarships are awarded to current high school seniors who live in the 60 cities and towns that make up Worcester County. Applicants should intend to enroll full-time in an undergraduate two or four-year degree program at an accredited college or university. However, exceptions do apply and we encourage applicants to review our website closely and contact scholar@greaterworcester.org if they have any questions about eligibility.

I am grateful for this scholarship, and I wanted to help fund a future student's education. While providing financial help, it shows me there's people looking out for my success and the success of my generation. That's a beautiful thing.
