Planning Your Career Path
The Greene County Foundation is pleased to provide a number of scholarships to area students for the continuation of their education. We believe our young adults are the most valuable resource we have. We want to encourage our young adults to expand their horizons and build their skills; however, we also want to encourage them to return and give back to this community. A wealth of job opportunities are being created in the area which can provide opportunities and wages equivalent to other larger areas. To explore career opportunities in your area, visit Next Level Jobs Indiana or www.indianacareerconnect.com and search for positions. College and Career Pathways:  There are many options available to graduating high school seniors to pursue after high school. Many will pursue post-secondary education and obtain two- or four-year degrees or certificates; some will enter the workforce; some will enter military service; and some may not be sure of their next step. For an insightful and informative look at each of these options, visit Indiana Youth Institute’s Postsecondary Pathways page. Important Information:  Most scholarships provide for educational expenses only: primarily tuition and books. Once a scholarship is awarded, receipts will be required before payment is made. All tuition payments are made directly to the institution; payments for books or required supplies are made on a reimbursement basis. Students, upon receiving announcement of their awards, will be asked to provide the Foundation with written documentation of their acceptance of scholarships. Failure to do so may cause the scholarship to be awarded to someone else. Students receiving more than one scholarship or other forms of financial aid are required to inform the financial aid office of their institution of all financial awards received. Failure to do so can jeopardize further financial aid. All scholarships offered through the Greene County Foundation, unless otherwise specified in the terms of the scholarship award, are awarded for one year only. For questions about scholarships and your taxes, please see http://www.irs.gov/pub/irs-pdf/p970.pdf

Testimonials

Scholarship Test 1
Isabel Meek

Isabel Meek, Linton-Stockton High School, Class of 2020

In the spring of 2020, I was awarded the Linton-Stockton Special Achievement Scholarship from the Greene County Foundation. I am so grateful to have received this award. It has been helpful in paying my college tuition. I am a student in the Kelley School of Business at Indiana University, majoring in Finance and minoring in Mathematics. I plan on graduating in the spring of 2023.

Scholarship Test 2
Sammy Query

Sammy Query, Bloomfield High School, Class of 2018

I was awarded the Eleanor B. Turner Scholarship, and I can’t thank the Foundation enough. I’ll be graduating December 2021 with a degree in Journalism with a concentration in Public Relations, and I wouldn’t have been able to do it without this scholarship. College is expensive, and any extra help is always welcome. College has been challenging in a number of ways, but being able to worry a little less about student debt has made my experience much easier.

Scholarship Test 3

Cassidy Ellis, Dugger Union Community Schools, Class of 2019

I received the Aydelotte Scholarship. I have been extremely blessed in many aspects of my life, but receiving this scholarship has made a world of difference with my college career. I am actively a student in the Medical Imaging - Radiologic Technology program at Ivy Tech Community College graduating in May of 2022. Without this scholarship, it would be difficult to pay for all of the expenses that are included in college. Thank you!
