Funding scholarships The Plymouth Education Foundation supports the community’s value on continuing education by sustaining and enhancing its Scholarship Program. Every year more than 20 PHS graduating seniors receives a foundation-administered scholarship generously donated by individuals, businesses, and/or organizations wishing to recognize them for their accomplishments and help them pursue a post-secondary education.

For more than 25 years, the foundation has administered over $500,000 in merit and need-based scholarships to students planning to attend either a 4 year college/ university or 2 year technical school. Scholarship recipients show a commitment to their education, a sincere desire to serve others, and/or the ability to overcome challenges in an effort to reach personal goals.

The Plymouth Education Foundation makes it easy for individuals, businesses and organizations to support a scholarship. Foundation Scholarship Supporters set the criteria and the foundation’s scholarship committee selects the recipient on the donors’ behalf. The foundation’s scholarship committee matches recipients to the specific criteria of its donor. Foundation Scholarship Supporters are recognized at Scholarships Awards Night and have the option to present the scholarship in person or have the foundation present the scholarship on their behalf. Making a donation to the Plymouth Education Foundation Scholarship Fund is an investment in the future of our community and an excellent way to honor an individual, business, or organization. The Plymouth Education Foundation is a 501(c)3 organization, making donations tax deductible.
