At the scholarship reception in May, nearly 200 high school seniors will be recognized as recipients of more than $1 million in scholarship awards.  Since awarding the first scholarship in 1954, more than $13 million to more than 4,000 students.

"By awarding me the Rotary Club of Hamilton “Service Above Self” Award, you have lightened my financial burden which allows me to focus more on the most important aspect of school, learning. Your generosity has inspired me to help others and give back to the community. I hope one day I will be able to help students achieve their goals just as you have helped me," wrote one of this year's recipients.

Thanks to the many donors who have generously provided scholarships that are making an impact in the lives of our students and their families today and into the future.

The Hamilton Community Foundation is a public charity committed to improving the quality of life for the greater Hamilton, Ohio community and its residents. Founded in 1951 with one $5,000 fund, the Foundation now manages more than 700 charitable funds.
