Scholarships: General Information

The deadline for scholarships has been extended to Monday, January 28, 2019.

In 2019, scholarships totaling over $220,000, will be awarded to Elk Grove area students.

The scholarships that are generated and managed through the Elk Grove Regional Scholarship Foundation vary considerably in both amount of award and in the profiles of intended recipients.

The criteria describing intended recipients are determined by the individual or group who establishes the scholarship through initial donations and a commitment to endow.  For instance, community involvement may be a criterion for some EGRSF scholarships, but not for others.  Some are intended for students who enroll in four-year colleges; some are for students who plan to attend trade schools. 

The EGRSF offers scholarships for individuals pursuing various careers including agriculture, nursing, education, auto mechanics, politics, and the arts, to name a few.  Please see the list of scholarships with details about each.
