For the 2010-2011 academic year, the Community Foundation of Central Georgia awarded more than $68,000 in college scholarships from 14 scholarship funds to benefit 58 students from Central Georgia. CFCG has 20 scholarship funds, which allow our donors to invest in the future by helping deserving students pursue higher education. Students benefit from the financial assistance as well as the academic recognition of being a scholarship recipient. Please note that not all scholarships are available or awarded on an annual basis.
