The College Club of Cleveland Foundation

Founded in 1898, the College Club of Cleveland aims to promote the social, philanthropic and literary interest of Cleveland’s college-educated women. As early as 1898 the members collected donations for women seeking higher education. The Augusta Mittleberger Scholarship was established in 1924, to be followed in 1998 by the Sally Hirsh Scholarship, and in 2016 the Charlene Phelps Scholarship. Additional scholarships are awarded as funds become available. The College Club Foundation has awarded over 120 scholarships since 1990. Although in the Club’s early years only the education of women was promoted, the present day Club admits both men and women and the Foundation now awards scholarships to both male and female students.

The College Club of Cleveland Foundation, whose funds are managed by The Cleveland Foundation, is pleased to offer scholarships to seniors graduating from public high schools in Cleveland and the surrounding suburbs. Awards are for tuition only and are limited to a maximum of four years or the achievement of a Baccalaureate degree, whichever comes first.

All scholarships are renewable annually if students maintain a 3.0 GPA or higher. To renew your scholarship, have your transcript sent to or to the address below as soon as it is available, to allow time for sending the check to your institution.
