Currently we manage over 50 named scholarships for individuals and organizations who want to make a difference in the lives of Arlington High School Students.  ACF oversees the selection process, consisting of a thourough review of applications by independent community members who consider various criteria, after which students who are eligible and qualified are matched to the appropriate scholarships by a scholarship committee. 

Every year, the Foundation helps Arlington high school students pay for college, with scholarships ranging in amount from $1,000 to $10,000. The Community Scholarship Fund renews scholarships of up to $1,000 to those previous recipients who are successfully continuing their studies. Seven scholarships have a renewable value of at least $20,000.
