Community Foundation Holland/Zeeland


About Our Scholarships

The Community Foundation of the Holland/Zeeland Area awards $600,000 in scholarships each year for students to attend schools of higher education throughout the nation. Our scholarships are possible thanks to the generosity of many local individuals, families, and businesses who have invested in our community's future through CFHZ by furthering the education of others.
