Whether you are a St. Joseph County high school student in search of scholarship assistance, or a potential donor wanting to make a difference by helping local students achieve their educational dreams, you’ve come to the right place. We are the oldest and largest St. Joseph County organization dedicated solely to raising and awarding funds for college scholarships. Since our founding in 1958, we’ve awarded in excess of $4.5 million dollars in scholarship aid to local students attending four-year colleges and universities across the country.

We are firm believers that education is the key to a brighter future for all of us. Our hope is that one day, with the community’s help, we will be able to achieve our mission- to ensure that every St. Joseph County high school student with the academic qualifications and desire to attend college will be given that opportunity. We hope you will join us in making that mission a reality.
