Chariton Valley Scholarship

Chariton Valley annually awards scholarships to exceptional students for their first year of college or vocational school. We have awarded nearly $80,000 dollars in scholarships since its inception. Chariton Valley is committed to strengthening our rural communities, building lasting relationships and helping promising students pursue their dreams. Eligibility requirements and the online application can be found at Please note it is a requirement that the students’ parents or guardians be a Chariton Valley phone, internet or cable customer.
