The D54 Foundation proudly offers memorial scholarship grants for students in early childhood through seventh grade, which are funded, in part, through contributions received in honor of individuals who have passed away. This grant will be offered to the children of School District 54 to cultivate an academic, cultural or athletic interest to enrich student educational opportunities. Memorial grants will be limited to a maximum of $100 per recipient. The grants are intended for children from families facing extenuating financial circumstances.
