Senior Scholarships

seniorscholarshipsThe Cobb Schools Foundation has awarded over $500,000 in scholarships to high school seniors since 1999. The Foundation awards two $1000 scholarships to seniors in each of the 16 high schools in the Cobb County School District. Due to the tremendous growth of the scholarship program over the past 10 years, we now manage many other scholarship funds. These scholarships are possible due to the generosity of numerous businesses and members of the community who wish to give back to the school district through a scholarship fund.

Are Your Interested in Starting a Named Scholarship?

Cobb Schools Foundation is pleased to announce the start of our new Named Scholarship Program.

There are three scholarship options available. Factors such as individual goals, amount you wish to donate, etc. will determine the scholarship type that is the best fit.

Named Endowed Scholarships
Named Endowed Scholarships will continue to support the student’s needs in perpetuity. A minimum gift of $25,000 will be invested to the Cobb Schools Foundation, and each year the Foundation will award a scholarship from the earnings on your named scholarship fund. The payout rate is adjusted annually by the Foundation Scholarship Committee, based on investment returns.

Named Annual Scholarships will support the student’s needs for one or more years, depending on the amount of your gift. In this case, the minimum gift is $1,000, which will provide a one-year scholarship. If you wish provide a scholarship for multiple years, apply the following formula to determine your scholarship plan.

Annual Scholarship Award $_______ X _______ years = total gift $ _________

Scholarship Gift If you would like to make a scholarship gift of under $1,000, you might consider a gift to the Foundation’s annual fund, the general scholarship fund, or one of the existing named scholarship funds.
