Purpose and Activities

To provide grants to Cuyahoga County, OH institutions to be administered for scientific and technological scholarships to Cuyahoga students.


Incorporated in 1954 in OH - John Huntington lived from 1832 to 1893 and made a fortune through his association with the Standard Oil Company. The purpose of the foundation was to provide scholarships to greater Cleveland students in lieu of operating the John Huntington Polytechnic Institute, a free evening polytechnic school referred to in Huntington's will, which had reached its peak enrollment in 1940. Following the school's closing, the foundation distributed about $450,000 a year in scholarships. In 1972, however, the foundation announced plans to drop the scholarship program, instead providing contributions directly to educational institutions in the Cleveland, Ohio, area for their financial aid programs and special projects in science and vocational education. For the past several years, the foundation's contributions have been solely for student scholarships at Cuyahoga County institutions
