TIPP CITY — The Tipp City Foundation recently awarded $24,900 in scholarships. Many scholarships went to graduating high school seniors while nearly half went to renewing applicants from prior years.

Of the 45 endowment funds within the Foundation, a dozen represent scholarships. Often these funds commemorate inspirational values of a family or individual and applicants are measured against those standards. Winners are determined through a vetting process led by an independent body of judges.
