At its 36th annual Excellence in Education event, the Saginaw Community Foundation presented 649 scholarship awards to 389 high school, college and nontraditional students on May 15, 2023 totaling $878,550.
“The purpose of the annual Excellence in Education event is to recognize, award and inspire students who have earned scholarships from the Saginaw Community Foundation,” said Chamika Ford, program officer at the foundation. “We also honor the donors who have established scholarship funds at the foundation.”
Since 1987, the foundation has awarded more than $9.9 million to students to help them achieve their educational goals.

The foundation currently administers 248 scholarship funds that have been established by its donors.
Saginaw Community Foundation will begin accepting applications for 2024 scholarships on Nov. 1, 2023. More information is available at
