Helping Students Achieve Their Goals 

Blue Grass Community Foundation recognizes the profound power of education to not only transform lives of individuals, but also the life of our community. 

Thanks to generous donors, we have awarded more than $5 million dollars to support students working to reach their full potential with educational opportunities beyond high school.  We manage more than 50 scholarships, each with varying criteria and award amounts.  While some of the scholarships are administered through a designated high school or organization, most are administered through our Scholarship Portal where students are matched with more than 25 scholarship opportunities.
