Qualified individuals can now apply for Highfields Aldinger Scholarships. Scholarships up to $1,500 are available to individuals who have received services or have a family member who has received services through Highfields.

The purpose of this fund is to support educational goals, such as adult education or enrichment programs, college courses, vocational training programs or trade schools.

“Highfields empowers children and families to take control of their lives,” said Brian Philson, Highfields President and CEO. “Offering Aldinger Scholarships will help them achieve their educational goals and aspirations.”

Highfields will award several scholarships depending on the availability of funds. Each scholarship application will be reviewed by the Endowment Committee and in special circumstances additional funds may be made available. Funds that are approved will be sent directly to the educational institution in the applicants’ name.

To apply for a scholarship, please submit an application by Friday, March 15, 2019. The application can be found at: www.highfields.org/resources.

The Aldinger Scholarship was created in 1996 in the name of local philanthropist, John Aldinger. Aldinger was a successful businessman who believed in the power of education. He made generous contributions to Highfields before his death in 1995.

Highfields is a nonprofit human services organization which provides home-based counseling, residential care, and experiential education and support programs for children, youth, and families in 13 mid-Michigan counties. For more information, please visit www.highfields.org.
