Supporting sixty-four local students in pursuit of higher education.

Today, 64 local students will gather at the Buttonwood Park Zoo for the SouthCoast Community Foundation scholarship reception to receive their awards totaling more than $514,000. This year’s recipients were chosen from a pool of more than 1100 high school seniors and college students from throughout the region, representing 22 different educational institutions.

“Our annual scholarship reception brings together those who make this work so rewarding and empowering. The funders who make the scholarships possible, the volunteers that spend countless hours reviewing applications, the families that support student achievement, and most importantly, the students who are pursuing higher education,” commented SouthCoast Community Foundation President and CEO, Leonard Lee. “They are the future leaders of our community, and we are so pleased to support them on their journey.”
