Looking for a Few Good Students

Youth Advisory Council (YAC) members have the opportunity to participate in the Foundation's grantmaking process, engage with students from other schools, and organize community service projects, such as a food drive and fundraiser. This is a unique chance to develop critical leadership skills, build a new network of friends, and make a positive impact in your community. We encourage those who are passionate about giving back to apply.

Important Scholarship News!


The US Department of Education is currently updating the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Normally available in October, the 2023-24 FAFSA will not be available until sometime in December, which means THCF will also delay our 2023-24 scholarship application period. Please review our scholarship pages for the latest information and timelines.
