Our Opportunities

Welcome to Austin Community Foundation’s Scholarship Application Portal!

The Austin Community Foundation’s scholarship program provides additional opportunities to community members pursuing their educational goals. Since 1996, the Foundation has awarded $8.2 million in scholarships. Each year, we award approximately 300 scholarships totaling more than $600,000. A majority of our scholarships support students from Central Texas or students at local educational institutions. After completing the general application, each applicant is automatically matched to over 100 scholarship opportunities of which they qualify for. Some opportunities may ask you to answer additional questions.
