Scholarships for Recent College Graduates (TAP) Scholarship
Talent Attraction Program Scholarship
The impact of the Hamilton Community Foundation is evident throughout our community. In addition to the support of the community as a whole, we continue with a special focus on educational programs and grants. In the past 60 years, we have provided over $13 million dollars in scholarships to more than 3,000 students, and this support of area students will continue in years to come with the new Talent Attraction Program (TAP) Scholarship.
The TAP Scholarship is what is known as a “reverse scholarship” where recent graduates will receive assistance with student loan debt.
To be eligible you must:
- Have graduated within the last 7 years from a STEAM program (Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts, or Mathematics) preferred.
- Not currently living in designated areas in the city of Hamilton BUT with plans to move to or live in the designated areas in Hamilton - map
- Must demonstrate employment within City of Hamilton or Butler County
- Prefer those with a desire to give back to the community and become engaged in activities
Successful applicants to the program may receive up to $10,000, $300 per month for 30 months. If the applicant ceases employment or moves before the end of the 30 month period, they forfeit the right to any future payments.
We will review applications as needed on a monthly/quarterly basis.
