Olive and Herbert Randall

Since awarding the first Olive & Herbert Randall Scholarship in 1954, the Hamilton Community Foundation has given more than $13 million in scholarships to more than 3,000 area students.

 Today, the Hamilton Community Foundation manages a large and exciting scholarship program for:

      (1) Graduating high school seniors attending high schools in the greater Hamilton, Ohio area

             High schools eligible:  Stephen T. Badin, Edgewood, Fairfield, Hamilton, New Miami  Ross, Talawanda and Lakota

             Home educated students from these high school districts are also eligible for one scholarship

      (2) Full-time students already attending college that attended Hamilton area high schools

      (3) Adults returning to college who are residents of Hamilton, Ohio.

      (4) Talent Attraction Program Scholarships for college graduates.

Thank you to the generous support of the many donors who care deeply about education and the students in our community.
