To promote and provide financial support through merit-based scholarships for higher education to the beneficiaries of active, retired, and deceased

About the Board
The Combined Scholarship Fund is a board comprised of volunteers from the local Fort Riley community who have committed their time and talents to ensure each year the CSF is a success. If you are interested in helping out in any way, or volunteering on the board, please shoot us an email!
They work diligently receiving and verifying information, as well as reading, judging, and rating essays -- with the help of an anonymous judging panel --and ultimately allocating and issuing scholarship dollars.
