Washington County, OH — Up to $400K in scholarships will be awarded through Marietta Community Foundation in 2023, and students are encouraged to apply sooner rather than later.

There are opportunities available for students from Washington County, OH; Noble County, OH; Wood County, WV; and beyond. While many scholarships are designed to assist high school seniors, there are opportunities available for high school underclassmen and nontraditional students as well. 

Recipients are selected based on a variety of criteria, such as financial need, academic standing, community service, character and leadership qualities. Personal information is redacted before selection committees review applications to ensure the process is as fair as possible.
