Legacy Scholarship • How to Become a Legacy Volunteer Agency

General Information

The Legacy Scholarship is awarded to students attending or planning on attending Midland College.  The student must graduate from high school in Midland County, meet GPA standards, and complete 40 hours of community service at an approved Legacy Volunteer Agency.

The program is GENEROUSLY funded by Abell-Hanger Foundation, Helen Greathouse Charitable Trust, Chaparral Foundation, and Clarence Scharbauer Foundation.  

In addition to the amazing funders, this program is not possible without the dedication of our community agencies, so THANK YOU for the time and effort you give to provide our students with a meaningful community service/volunteer experience. 

The expressed desire of the Legacy Scholarship funding partners is that the selected agencies provide a volunteer experience for students that will "touch their hearts about the needs of others."
