The Scioto Foundation’s University College Access Network or UCAN was launched in 2008. It is a program that helps youth plan, prepare, and pay for college through strong partnerships with all Scioto County, Ohio schools, the South-Central Ohio ESC, local businesses, and donors.
The UCAN Wheelersburg Excellence Scholarship is part of the UCAN program. Wheelersburg has over $231,000 in its endowment fund and has given away over $78,000 in scholarships to 152 students since the start of the program.
The Scioto Foundation will be offering a $40,000 match this year. All donations to Scioto County UCAN Funds from September 1 through August 31 will be matched. The match ratio will depend upon the amount of donations received. It is our hope that UCAN and UCAN related funds will reach the $4-million-dollar mark in total assets by year 2028.
