About The Fund

The newly formed Belmont Scholarship Fund provides scholarships to graduating seniors of Belmont High School. The Fund was established in 2013 with donations from community members.

The Belmont Scholarship Fund is led by an advisory board of Belmont citizens operating independently of the school district. The advisory board leads fundraising efforts and will determine the annual scholarship awards.

The Belmont Scholarship Fund Advisory Board also serves as the advisory board to the Belmont Excellence in Education Fund.
