“It’s exciting to help Ridge
students create a successful future.”


Our hearts go out to everyone affected by the Camp Fire. We are working closely with our local high school administrators to determine this year's scholarship recipients.  We will help to rebuild our beautiful community. #ButteStrong #ParadiseStrong

Paradise Scholarship Foundation, a nonprofit organization founded in 1956, provides access to postsecondary education to students who may not otherwise have the financial means to fulfill their educational goals.  The Foundation sees higher education as a catalyst and an agent of change for individuals, families and our local community.


For over 60 years, Paradise Scholarship Foundation's focus has been to promote and provide financial support for postsecondary education.  The Foundation's vision is to build a collaborative network of community members aligned to support student preparation, transition and persistence to postsecondary degree completion.  The Paradise Scholarship Foundation is funded entirely by our community and the Board of Directors consists entirely of volunteers from our community. 

To those who share this same vision, Paradise Scholarship Foundation offers opportunities to help through financial and in-kind support, as well as community service and volunteerism by joining our Board of Directors.  YOU can make a difference and help Ridge students create a successful future.
