MARIETTA KIWANIS FOUNDATION SCHOLARSHIPS
Over the past years, our Club has established and contributed to several scholarship endowments in order to make annual scholarship awards to deserving college students in our community.

The Marietta Kiwanis Foundation Scholarships described below are made possible through the generous financial gifts of individuals, businesses, and community residents throughout Cobb County.  Our scholarship program is also made possible through our Club's Flag Project where over 1,600 American flags are placed in front of businesses and residences throughout the community six times each year. 

Two new scholarships have been introduced for 2018:
  • Marietta City Schools - Glenn Graham Memorial Scholarship

       ○ The MCS superintendent will submit 3 candidates by March 15 for final selection by the Kiwanis Scholarship Committee
  • Cobb County School District - Founders/Beck Scholarship
