About The Fund

The Hillsboro Scholarship Fund provides scholarships to graduating seniors of Hillsboro High School. The Fund was established in 2012 with donations from community members. The Hillsboro Scholarship Fund is led by an advisory board of Hillsboro citizens operating independently of the school district. The advisory board leads fundraising efforts and will determine the annual scholarship awards. The Hillsboro Scholarship Fund Advisory Board also serves as the advisory board to the Hillsboro Excellence in Education Fund.
