Scholarships

To further the Caledonia Area Chamber of Commerce (CACC) mission of supporting economic growth and community enrichment, the Chamber has established a scholarship fund to honor students who demonstrate character and leadership in our community. Funding for the CACC Scholarship Program is raised through the annual CACC Tee-up for Scholarships Golf Tournament. Scholarships may be used at the university, college, or trade school of the student’s choice.
