Stars Scholarship Fund partners with select school districts throughout our service area in order to build a relationship that is mutually beneficial to both organizations. This partnership allows us to assist more students from the community to attend college. School districts can raise funds with confidence that their dollars are going directly to students from their district to attend college via a Stars Scholarship.
For the 2021-2022 Stars Scholarship application cycle, we will continue to partner with the following school districts. This means that Stars Scholarship Fund will allocate funds specifically for Class of 2021 graduates from each district. The number of students awarded through these partnerships is directly related to the funds raised by each district. Applicants who are selected as recipients under these partnerships will be notified before their graduation date. All other applicants from the district will continue through our normal application process for another opportunity to be selected and will be notified in June/July.
