Harrison County Community Foundation (HCCF) is proud to announce $681,500 in scholarship awards to 90 high school students who are residents of Harrison County. These scholarships serve as a testament to the Foundation's commitment to supporting education and empowering students within our community.

The scholarship recipients were selected impartially by a countywide Universal Scholarship committee using a completely blind scoring process based on their academic achievements, extracurricular involvement, community impact, or other criteria, depending on the scholarship awarded. Each recipient represents a bright and promising future for our community.

"We are thrilled to award these scholarships to local high school students who have exhibited exemplary commitment to their education and community," said Julie Moorman, HCCF President & CEO. "Investing in education is investing in the future prosperity of our community."

The scholarships will provide financial assistance to these talented students as they pursue their education goals. By alleviating some of the financial burdens associated with higher education and training, HCCF aims to enable students to focus on their studies and achieve academic success.

The Foundation extends its gratitude to the donors, supporters, and community members whose generosity has made these scholarships possible. Their contributions have directly impacted the lives of 90 deserving students and have opened doors to more opportunities and brighter futures.

Since inception, Harrison County Community Foundation has awarded approximately $14.8 million in scholarship awards to residents of Harrison County. For more information about HCCF and our scholarship programs, please visit hccfindiana.org/scholarships or call (812) 738-6668.
