Cheryl Owens Scholarship Fund – 1157

Fund Type: Passthrough Scholarship Fund


Fund Description:


The purpose of the Fund shall be to provide support as directed by the Board of Directors (the “Board”) of the Community Foundation for educational scholarships for students who are accepted into and attend accredited trade certification, two- or four-year public or private institutions of higher learning as described in Code section 170(b)(1)(A)(ii), and in particular to such students who meet the following qualifications: Have a GPA of 2.5 or higher, show financial need, are 1st generation students, and have been, or are, on free and reduced lunch.

In the event that the above criteria are too restrictive (because no student acceptable to the Community Foundation meets the criteria, or for other reasons), the purpose of the Fund shall include the support of educational scholarships for deserving students who most closely satisfy the criteria. All support provided from the Fund shall further the educational, charitable, or other exempt purposes of the Community Foundation within the meaning of Code section 170(c)(1) or 170(c)(2)(B) and shall be consistent with the mission and purposes of the Community Foundation.
