Hosted by the Germantown Community Scholarship Fund (GCSF), the academic successes and achievements of Germantown area’s high school graduating seniors will be celebrated and recognized.

Scholarship funding is raised through an Annual Dinner & Auction held annually in February, the GCSF Endowment Fund and donations from area businesses, organizations and individuals entrusting GCSF to facilitate their named scholarship awards. To date over $2,500,000 has been awarded in scholarships to deserving seniors.
Congratulations to all recipients!
33rd Annual Dinner & Auction
A huge Thank You! to our 2018 Annual Dinner & Auction Premier Sponsor, Edward Jones - Jon Hafemann Agency
The 2018 GCSF 33rd Annual Dinner & Auction was held on Thursday, February 1. This year’s theme was in honor of the upcoming 2018 Winter Olympics. As we recognize Olympic champions from around the world, we also celebrate our own Germantown student champions who are “Going for the Gold” and beyond to further their educations and future.
Proceeds from this exciting and
fun-filled evening go directly toward funding 2018
scholarships for students from our community. Last year,
GCSF awarded 96 scholarships totaling more than $139,300 as
a direct result of our fundraising efforts. GCSF also
provides funding for Germantown teacher grants to support
classroom enrichment projects. With your help, we can
continue to support the educational goals of both our
champion students and teachers in the Germantown community.
Stay tuned for information on the results of the 2018 Dinner

High School Students
GCSF created the Scholarship Planner to help high school students prepare for scholarship applications. All incoming High School Freshman will receive a Scholarship Planner with their registration materials. Finding ways to pay for higher education can be a daunting task. GCSF hopes to simplify the process of completing general scholarship applications and GCSF Scholarship applications by providing students with a planner designed to record academics, in and out of school activities, co-op participation, volunteerism, and employment history. Printing of the Scholarship Planners was funded by Dental Professionals. Copies of the planner are available in the Germantown High School Guidance office, at Dental Professionals and on this Web site.
