The Columbus Education Foundation, in partnership with Columbus High School, helps donors create named scholarships for students to attend Columbus, or for graduating seniors. These funds can be restricted and the donor can establish the criteria for the scholarship. To establish a $500 annual scholarship through CEF, a minimum amount of $10,000 is needed. This gift will ensure that the scholarship will continue in perpetuity. A $20,000 donation would award a $1,000 scholarship each year. Donors may give to an existing scholarship or contact the Development Office to establish a new one.
