"The foundation currently administers numerous scholarship funds that have been established by donors whose charitable intent is to assist students in their pursuit of a post-secondary education," said Debbie Hubbard, foundation executive director. "Some scholarships are open to any major, while others are limited to students pursing a career in a particular field of study – like nursing, music, mass communications or journalism. Some scholarships are only available to students attending a particular Siouxland high school, while others are less specific."
