The Skandalaris Family Foundation is an independent, non-profit foundation that awards scholarships to students characterized by their special talents, leadership skills, unselfish ways, strong values, and commitment to excellence. The majority of their scholarships will be granted to residents of the State of Michigan, but the scholarship is not limited to Michigan residents.

A selection committee reviews the completed applications. Recipients are chosen based on the following factors, grade point average, achievement test scores, essay, accomplishments outside of the classroom, and future potential, with some consideration for financial need. There is an emphasis on each individual's character.
