One of 29 affiliates of Arkansas Community Foundation, Carroll County Community Foundation has provided over $1.4 million in grants throughout our 23 years of service. These grants come from our Fall Giving Tree Grant Cycle and our other funds and endowments created by local individuals and families. Our grants respond to critical needs, such as food insecurity and medical issues, as well as programs that sustain and enrich, like the arts and education.

Contact us today. We would love to hear about your passion for giving and create a customized, tax-friendly giving plan that will make a difference in our county, state and nation.

Arkansas students pursuing higher education at two- or four-year colleges or universities, vocational schools, or technical training programs can apply for more than 200 private scholarships.

Funding for these scholarships comes from families, businesses and individuals who want to support higher education and invest in local students. Theses donors determine the size and eligibility criteria for the scholarships they create, and the Foundation manages the scholarship process on their behalf.

To find out who can benefit from these scholarships, take our eligibility quiz.

The online application process begins Feb. 1 and most deadlines are April 1. Be sure to double-check the deadline. Good luck!
