Many donors have chosen to establish scholarship funds at Greater Cincinnati Foundation to memorialize a loved one, honor an alma mater, or for a specific group of people.

Our Partnership with the Cincinnati Scholarship Foundation

Many of the scholarship funds established at GCF are administered by the Cincinnati Scholarship Foundation. Interested students should research available scholarships and apply directly to CSF.

The Cincinnati Business and Professional Women's Scholarship Fund

Established by the Cincinnati chapter of Business and Professional Women in 1999 to assist women aged 25 or older who are starting or returning to school for an associate or baccalaureate degree at an accredited regional school. It is one of the only scholarship funds for adult women. Scholarships are awarded based on academic performance and potential, financial need, and the quality of the application. More than 70 women have been helped through this fund.

Applications are accepted March 1 – April 30 every year. 


The Advocates for African Americans (A3) Grant Scholarships

The Advocates for African Americans (A3) Grant Scholarships are based on academic achievements, honors, school and community participation, career goals, and a letter of recommendation.  Scholarships are “awarded” regardless of race, creed, religion, gender, or national origin.  A panel of community judges select the recipients. Award amounts may vary from year-to-year.  Recipients are awarded from the Duke Energy A3 [Midwest] Scholarship Fund. 

Applications are accepted by June 12, 2020 11:59 p.m.
