Supporting Exceptional Students from Rural America!

The CARH Scholarship Foundation is a separate 501(c)3 entity from CARH that provides college scholarships to exceptional students who reside in CARH-member properties. The Foundation was created in 2005 to promote education and expand opportunities for residents of affordable rural housing. CARH started with two scholarships in 2005, added a third in 2010 and a fourth scholarship was added in 2013. All four scholarships provide $1,000 each semester for up to four years. The CARH scholarships are named after James L. Poehlman, Gordon L. Blackwell and Jack Godin, Jr., three CARH members who were instrumental in the association’s success. The 4th scholarship is the CRHD Founders Scholarship, and honors all of the founding members of the Council for Rural Housing Development (CRHD) which is the precursor to the current CARH.

CARH and the Foundation thank all of our members for their support of the Scholarship Fund!
