Kern Community Foundation

Regardless of who you are, where you come from, or what you hope to become, as long as you are graduating from a Kern County high school, financial support from our wide range of scholarship opportunities can be the springboard to help you fulfill your educational goals.
One Application – Dozens of Opportunities
Kern Community Foundation manages more than two dozen scholarship funds. Community stakeholders have created these scholarships to honor their loved ones, to support higher education, and to foster the improvement of students as they pursue their diverse ambitions. Students have access to all our scholarship resources through one simple application.
If you have a 2.0 or higher GPA, and are a senior graduating from high school, we encourage you to apply. With one simple online application, you will be considered for dozens of scholarships, many of which have renewal opportunities. You do not need to decide in advance which scholarship you are applying for. Just submit the best application you can and we will handle the rest.
