    FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
     
    July 27, 2021
     
    Community Foundation of the Lowcountry Awards Nearly $770,000
    in Scholarships for the 2021-2022 Academic Year
     
    Community Foundation of the Lowcountry has announced its 2021-2022 academic year scholarship recipients. In total, 151 students received $769,765 through 196 scholarship awards. Scholarship recipients will be attending more than 71 different colleges and universities, spanning the continental United States, from California to the East Coast.
    Since 1994, Community Foundation of the Lowcountry has awarded more than $8.5 million in scholarships.
    “This is always an exciting time of year for us,” said Scott Wierman, president and CEO of the Community Foundation. “We are extremely proud of these students and what they’ve accomplished, but also appreciative of the generous donors who’ve chosen to support education and invest in these deserving young people as they accomplish their educational and career goals.” 
    Each scholarship has its own unique criteria and donors who establish the scholarship funds determine what those are. Some scholarships are one-time; others can follow the student through their undergraduate and graduate degrees. For more information about each scholarship, visit cf-lowcountry.org.
