About Us

Welcome to the Craig D. Butler Scholarship Foundation Pennsylvania!

This scholarship was established to honor the life of Craig D. Butler and to continue his legacy of integrity, generosity and service.

CDB Scholarship aims to aid young adults from under-served populations to pursue higher education. Each year, we will seek future high school graduates to offer financial support as they pursue their dreams in the aftermath of gun violence.

The CDB Scholarship in Pennsylvania is an annual, merit based competition that focuses on instilling philanthropic values in ambitious, driven, goal-oriented individuals. This is a one-time award of $1000. Financial need is considered, however, all high school seniors are encouraged to apply. 

An award recipient is selected in April of each year.
