Since 1998, the Harrison County Community Foundation has provided funds each spring to each of the high schools for non-renewable scholarships. In 2019, we provided $738,117 in scholarships to over 110 graduating seniors throughout Harrison County. Scholarship recipients are selected by a universal scholarship committee which has community volunteers, past HCCF board members, one current HCCF board member and school personnel from each of the four county high schools as members.

The Building Our Future scholarships are awarded to Harrison County resident graduating seniors. The Building Our Future Scholarship recipients receive $2,500 a year renewable for four years for a total of $10,000 each. The Board of Directors determines annually the number available to each high school primarily upon senior class size as reported by the high schools in January.

HCCF also awards a $20,000 scholarship at each of the four Harrison County high schools to a student planning on attending Indiana University Southeast.


We currently have over 100 endowed scholarship funds that last year provided over $195,650 for Harrison County resident graduating seniors to attend college. These charitable endowment funds were established by residents of the community as well as local college universities, for-profit and non-profit organizations interested in providing educational assistance to our youth.
