The Peninsula Community Foundation manages 14 scholarship funds which provide opportunities for deserving students to pursue a college education.

Scholarships can be established by individuals, families, organizations and companies. Donors may also define the eligibility guidelines for candidate selection or designate a specific field, study or college to be attended. Fund Agreements for scholarship awards are customized to each donor's wishes.
