Transforming community through philanthropy.

Louisiana Heroes' Scholarship

The Louisiana Heroes' Scholarship Fund was created to provide college and vocational school tuition to the children of Louisiana's teachers, coaches, law enforcement officers, and first responders. Attorney Scott Chafin created the fund in conjunction with the Community Foundation by making an initial donation of $25,000. The fund is kept alive by annual fundraisers and private donations. The Louisiana Heroes' Scholarship Fund will award (5) $2,500 scholarships annually. These scholarships will be awarded based on the applicant's merit and need. Each application will be reviewed by the Louisiana Heroes' Scholarship Fund Selection Committee. The scholarships will be given out at the Annual Louisiana Heroes' Scholarship Fundraising Gala held on October 20th, 2018. To apply, click here.
