Scholarship funds allow donors to invest in the future by helping deserving students pursue higher education. Scholarship Funds can be established to benefit students from particular geographic areas or schools, attending certain post-secondary institutions, or entering certain fields of study.
Scholarship funds provide for tuition, room and board to college or university students. The PineBelt Foundation staff will help donors develop criteria and selection process, which are determined when the fund is established.
