Scholarships Program

The CAEEF was created in 2015 to benefit the students, staff and schools of the Crawford AuSable School District through college scholarships for seniors and grants for projects in pre-K-12th grade classrooms. Thanks to our generous donors, the scholarships program has been growing every year:

In 2017, we awarded $4,000 to four GHS graduates.
In 2018, we awarded $8,500 to nine GHS graduates.
In 2019, we awarded $11,600 to nine GHS graduates.
In 2020, we awarded $12,200 to 15 GHS graduates.


Scholarships will be available for students attending colleges and universities and for students attending skilled trade and vocational schools in January 2021 for members of the Grayling High School Class of 2021.
