Scholarship funds are another type of charitable fund offered by the Girard Area Community Foundation. These funds help students pay the costs of attending college.

Girard Area Scholarship Opportunities

The Girard Area Community Foundation currently hosts one scholarship opportunity for local students, the Joe and Margarita Sauer Endowed Scholarship.

Our scholarships are offered as part of the Community Foundation of Southeast Kansas scholarship program. Applications are typically available each year between January and March.

Joe and Margarita Sauer Endowed Scholarship

The Joe and Margarita Sauer Endowed Scholarship provides scholarships for graduating seniors of Girard High School who have shown excellence in academics, school and community involvements, athletics, or the fine arts.

Scholarship funds are a great way for individuals, families, friends, students, teachers, or colleagues to leave a legacy or establish a memorial to impact the future of Girard area students! And GACF makes it easy for local residents to create new scholarship funds. Contact us today to learn more!
