Findlay Kiwanis Scholarships


The Findlay Kiwanis Scholarship was established in 1974 to support Hancock County students in their pursuit of a college education. The scholarship was originally established to honor Fred Brucklacher, a long time Secretary and Treasurer of the Findlay Kiwanis Club. The scholarship is funded by the Findlay Kiwanis Club through projects such as the annual Kiwanis Pancake Day held in every March and through donations from members. Since its inception, over $100,000 in scholarships have been awarded to over one hundred well deserving students.

This year, the Findlay Kiwanis Foundation will award $1,500 scholarships to students pursuing bachelor degree and $1,000 scholarships to students pursuing an Associates degree or technical certification

The Findlay Kiwanis Scholarships are awarded upon completion of the fall quarter or semester at school and are paid directly to the student. Scholarships are available to residents of Hancock County who are either graduating from High School or are currently enrolled in college or a technical certification program. Kiwanis members and their immediate family are not eligible.

Scholarships are awarded based upon a combination of:

  • Financial need
  • Academic success & rigor
  • Extracurricular activities
  • Community involvement
