Most foundation scholarships are for undergraduate or graduate students. However, a few foundations give grants to attend private elementary, middle or high school.
You can search for foundation grants with Foundation Grants to Individuals Online, our searchable database of grantmakers that give directly to individual grantseekers. Start with a Type of Support search for "Precollege support".
To search from your own computer, subscribe online. You also can use it for free at our libraries and Funding Information Network locations. This information is also available as a print directory.
