Scholarships

Download the 2017 scholarship application (PDF) here.

The Mt. Angel Community Foundation annually awards five (5) scholarships to be Mt. Angel’s graduating JFK High School seniors. Each scholarship awards $1,500 per year, renewable for up to four years of study. All types of universities, colleges, trade, technical or vocational schools are acceptable, a feature that makes these community-based funds unique among other scholarships.

MACF scholarships can open doors for students often overlooked by traditional sources of funding. These funds are not just for college-bound students; these scholarships are also available to JFK seniors who are seeking career-based training in skilled trades. This feature reflects the heritage of the Mt. Angel community, where many people work in the agricultural, mechanical, manufacturing, construction, or healthcare fields.

The scholarships are the flagship project of the Mt. Angel Community Foundation, the project around which our organization was founded in 1995. These funds were created by local families and businesses that wanted to invest in Mt. Angel’s future, by helping Mt. Angel’s next generations succeed. The Foundation began awarding scholarships in 1997. Other donors who share this commitment have added to the funds over the years, and our capacity to help JFK graduates achieve their educational goals has grown steadily.
