Supporting Higher Education, Not Higher Education Debt

Scholarship Program

The Mansfield Foundation's Scholarship Program consists of separate scholarship funds created by individual donors who establish specific criteria for the administration of their scholarships consistent with overall Mansfield Foundation policies.

Our Scholarship Donors

Annually, the Mansfield Foundation awards more than $600,000 in student academic support. The Funds donated to the Mansfield Foundation Scholarship Program reflect the favorite programs, majors, or activities of donors. Donors also have thoughts on the qualities an ideal recipient of their scholarship should have. The result is each scholarship has its own set of criteria, which can include such things as, grade point average requirements, year in school, academic major, geographic location of the recipient, among other criteria.
