The Boo Grigsby Foundation Scholarship Fund 

The Boo Grigsby Foundation Scholarship Fund was established in 2009 to provide funding for disadvantaged students to attend college. The purpose of the Fund is to provide scholarships to public high school graduates who currently attend schools receiving college and career coaching services by Career Compass.

The Fund is an award and incentive for young adults who have the qualifications to attend an accredited post-secondary institution, but do not have the financial ability to attend the school upon high school graduation. The Fund makes available funding for partial or full paid scholarships for students to attend an accredited public two-year, four-year, or technical college or university in Louisiana.

Now entering its eleventh year, the Boo Grigsby Foundation Scholarship Program has transformed the lives of 89 Greater Baton Rouge area students who would not have otherwise followed their dreams to college. To date, the program has produced 41 college graduates and counting.

We are not currently accepting applications for the Boo Grigsby Foundation Scholarship Program.
