For almost 100 years, the Canton Student Loan Foundation has put Stark County students first when it comes to helping with school expenses.  Our loan is local, has no fees and does not accrue interest while the student is in school.  That is a BIG deal since most loans start to accrue interest as soon as the funds are borrowed. 

Our funds come from student repayment and our membership program. 100% of all contributions made to the foundation go directly to Stark County students and with our 99.8% repayment rate, almost every penny that is loaned out is repaid. If you are a Stark County high school graduate, are going to school full time and have a GPA of a 2.0 or higher you are eligible to apply.  Apply online at or call the office at 330.493.0020. The deadline for fall loans is June 1, 2021!
