The George Snow Scholarship Fund applications are now available. The George Snow Scholarship has a mission to aid hardworking students to graduate from college through the help of financial aid and additional services. They believe that no student should lack education because of their economic status or lack of support. The fund was created in 1982 as a tribute to George Snow after his death in a helicopter accident. During his life, Snow believed in the importance of education and always had a passion to help those trying to better themselves in life.

Since 1982, $12,161,415.09 has been awarded to hundreds of students. In 2019 alone, they donated over $1,400,000 to students headed off to college. Out of the 1,060 submitted applications, 286 were chosen for an interview, and 150 students were awarded. Although the amount awarded varies, in 2019, the average cost of the award was $12,500.
