Scholarship program make our community stronger.
Scholarships administered by the Leelanau Township Community Foundation reward the achievement of our future community leaders. Some scholarships focus on a particular field of study; others reward overall academic efforts. Since the first scholarship was awarded in 1992, local students have received more than $350,000 to help them pay for college. These scholarships have helped local students achieve their educational and career goals. For a list of 2018 Scholarship Recipients, please go to our 2018 Awards and Scholarship page.
