The Paul J. Falco Scholarship provides a scholarship opportunity to high school level students from the Village of Marble Cliff who demonstrate outstanding scholastic and leadership qualities. Beginning in 2019, the Scholarship is administered through The Columbus Foundation.  For more information, click here.

The late Paul J. Falco, who served as Mayor of the Village for 36 years, was an ardent supporter of the Village, its residents, and the pursuit of life-long learning.  The generosity of this endowment by Mayor Falco and his wife Bobbie Hall Falco provides the opportunity to recognize the talented youth of the Village of Marble Cliff.  The Paul J. Falco Scholarship has awarded over $100,000 in scholarships to residents of the Village of Marble Cliff since its inception.

To be eligible, a student must be a high school level student, current resident of the Village and have lived in the Village for at least one year.   Candidates must have a minimum 3.0 or better grade point average (on a 4.0 scale).  Awarding the scholarship will be based on the applicant’s scholastic achievements (33%), character (33%), and service to school and community (34%).  First priority will be given to candidates who have not received the scholarship in the past.

To be considered, a student must complete The Columbus Foundation General Online Application which can be found on here.

March 1 at 5:00 pm is the deadline for consideration of a scholarship in each year.
