The Centra Foundation places a high value on education and the importance of individuals pursuing higher education opportunities. That’s why we offer scholarships for graduating high school seniors and non-traditional students who plan to attend a two or four year college, university, or technical school.
Every year, the Centra Foundation will award one scholarship per Centra location to graduating high school seniors. Applications will be evaluated on the following criteria; academic achievements, school and community involvement and a written essay related to financial literacy.
The Adult Scholarship is designed for adults over the age of 22 who have realized the importance of post-secondary education for their career and family.
An essay written by the applicant must accompany the completed scholarship application and must meet the following criteria:
