Central Scholarship is devoted to helping individuals achieve a better life through higher education. We believe that education is a right, not a privilege and that scholarships are an investment, not an expense.

Helping Students Achieve Since 1924

The 2014 scholarship application for degree-seeking students is now closed. Students who applied will receive scholarship award notifications by the end of July and interest-free loan notifications by the end of August. The 2015 application will open on January 1, 2015. Our scholarship application for certificate and career training students remains open.

Central Scholarship enables students to pursue education or training after high school through scholarship opportunities and interest-free loans that fund the gap after all other financial aid has been awarded. Established in 1924 and with over $1 million in scholarships awarded annually, we screen student applications against dozens of scholarship opportunities according to criteria established by our donors. With a deep connection to our students and the local community, our uniqueness is in our approach: we are investing in the future of our students, their families and the neighborhoods in which they live.
