About Us

The Etowah Scholarship Foundation began in 1982 and since its inception has awarded over $6 million in college scholarships to over 7,000 area students. We are a local 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to encouraging students in the pursuit of their dreams of a higher education by providing a distribution channel for college scholarships to the students of Bartow County, Georgia on behalf of local businesses, corporations, individuals, churches, and area civic organizations. We are very fortunate and blessed to have so many supporters that see the value in having a more educated community. This is an investment that will truly make a difference not only in the future of our recipients, but in the future of our quality of life as a whole.
