Each spring, The Oakwood Schools Foundation awards more than $18,000 in scholarships to graduating seniors. With increasing tuition, reduced federal and state grants and diminishing endowment support, The Oakwood Schools Foundation’s scholarships mean more to these recipients than ever.
Thanks to the generosity of the individuals and families who established these scholarships and to the donors who contribute toward these funds each year, Oakwood’s college-bound students appreciate this support for their continuing education.
