We Believe in the Enduring Value of Education

For almost a century, Central Scholarship has worked to give high school seniors and college students access to higher education regardless of their financial circumstances. We make undergraduate, graduate, professional, and career training studies accessible regardless of one’s financial background. Central Scholarship’s College Cash financial aid workshops, scholarships, grants, and interest-free loans create opportunities for students and their families to obtain a pathway to economic mobility. Whether you’re a student, parent, or Donor we have the resources for you.
