Now more than ever, higher education is crucial to success in life. Yet, with rising tuition costs, many people don’t have the resources required to earn one. U.S. student loan borrowers owed a collective $1.67 trillion in federal and private student loan debt as of June 2020, according to the Federal Reserve. 

Keokuk Area Community Foundation Scholarship Program recognizes student achievements and supports deserving students. Thanks to our family of donors, we have annual scholarships to provide funding to Tri-State Area students and working adults. Through our various scholarship programs, we award more than $250,000 in scholarships every year.


Scholarships are offered annually for high school seniors and college students, as well as adults. Scholarships are for students who will be attending a college, university, trade school, or community college this fall. Most scholarships are for one year, but some are 2-year, some 4-year, and some are renewable. Each scholarship may have its own eligibility requirements.



All Keokuk Area Community Foundation Scholarships open on

January 2, 2024. Each scholarship has a different deadline, so view our scholarship calendar here.
