Elk Grove Regional Foundation Scholarships 

The EGRSF offers scholarships for individuals pursuing various careers including agriculture, nursing, education, auto mechanics, politics, engineering, teaching and the arts, to name a few. Please see the list of scholarships with details about each. The criteria describing intended recipients are determined by the individual or group who establishes the scholarship through initial donations and a commitment to endow. For instance, community involvement may be a criterion for some EGRSF scholarships, but not for others. Some are intended for students who enroll in four-year or two- year colleges; and some are for students who plan to attend trade schools.  Please note: All scholarships require letters of recommendation. Please request them now from your community service leader, teachers or counselors. If you have any questions, please come by the career center. Good Luck!
