Stars Scholarship Fund has awarded scholarships for 18 years and has seen an increase of 301% in applications since its first application cycle in 2004. This increase reflects the needs of students in our community. Stars seeks to ensure that students who have the will to attend college have a way to do so. With that said, the number of scholarships we are able to award is directly related to the support of our sponsors and the amount of funds raised annually at Extravaganzas and through community partners. On average, Stars Scholarship Fund awards 987 scholarships annually, however our recipients now only represent 13.2% of our applicants and 45.3% of our eligible applicants. Stars Scholarship Fund has awarded 17,776 recipients since inception, leaving 25,680 eligible applicants unfunded. The data above shows that although our efforts have been consistent annually, it simply is not enough to cover the need in our community.
