ABOUT THE FOUNDATION

Governed by a board of directors of local business people, The Scholarship Foundation of Robertson County has established an endowment to provide scholarships to qualifying Robertson County students.

Since 1997, The Scholarship Foundation has awarded scholarships based on academic achievement, financial need, leadership and character. In addition to scholarships to students planning to attend college, the Scholarship Foundation offers scholarships to students planning to attend recognized vocational schools.

Since the Foundation’s formation, endowed scholarships honoring several families and organizations have been established and specific scholarships have been given as one-time awards. The Foundation also funds general scholarships through undesignated contributions.

The Scholarship Foundation of Robertson County is a nonprofit, tax-exempt organization that accepts contributions from industries, businesses, families, individuals and civic organizations for the purpose of providing financial assistance to Robertson County students to further their education.
