Give the gift of a higher education

We believe that a higher education should be available to everyone, regardless of financial limitations. Our foundation partners with businesses, foundations and individual donors to provide college scholarships to Greater Cincinnati area students. Since 1989, the Cincinnati Scholarship Foundation has administered $32,000,000 in scholarships to nearly 20,000 area students on behalf of our donors.

This is what past recipients are saying:

"My scholarship was a tremendous blessing for me and my family and I am proud to say that I graduated from Miami University with a degree in International Studies. Without your help, it would not have been possible." 

Emily, 2010

"You're truly making a difference in students' lives."
Matthew, 2011

"It is rare that you find a scholarship program that will support you all four years of college and you did just that."
Jameel, 2010

"Because of the scholarship I received, I was able to attend my dream school, Xavier University, whose tuition would have otherwise been out of my price range.  The Cincinnati Scholarship Foundation helped to make my college experience a reality. Please continue doing this splendid work."
Caleb, 2011
