Scholarship Program

The Chamber of Commerce takes great pride each year in awarding a scholarship to a high school senior residing on Grand Island. The scholarship committee reviewed over 30 applications from high school students that submitted essays describing what kind of business they would start on Grand Island and why they thought they would be successful. The committee looked for the applicant that demonstrated a degree of commitment to community service as found in extracurricular activities volunteer opportunities and church-related events. This scholarship is presented at the recipient’s graduation ceremony each year in June.

Scholarship funds are raised by the Chamber’s Scholarship Committee through raffle donations from various businesses and organizations.
