About CEF Scholarships 

Jon Teuscher Memorial Scholarship Presentation
Each year, the Foundation proudly awards scholarships to 90+ Carmel High School (IN) seniors. 
These scholarships have been created to help students, of all backgrounds and interests, further their education at either a college, university, or trade school.


CEF scholarships are funded through the generosity of families, organizations, and community donors. Donations to the Foundation fund several scholarships and support the administration of the application and award processes.
