For Good. For Ever.
We're proud to support our community's students and their educational endeavors by offering numerous scholarships. Our program includes financial aid opportunities for students of all ages who are at different stages in their educational pursuits, as well as a number of different areas of study.
Our online scholarship application opens in early January and remains open until mid-March. Scholarships recipients are notified in late April; and funds are sent directly to schools for the fall semester.

This scholarship was created in memory of Shannon Smith - a life-long native of Cheboygan, Michigan, whose passions were hunting, fishing, dog training, along with many other outdoor activities. She was admired for her vast knowledge of northern living regarding her love of nature, horses and her dogs. She was a graduate of Cheboygan Public Schools; and advanced her education first with a certificate in Cosmetology before becoming a Registered Dental Hygienist ... whose smile would light up any room.
