Community Scholarship Program
The Community Scholarship Program continues to recognize and reward graduating seniors as well as provide much needed scholarship funds. We have donations from dedicated Park City families, private donors and local businesses and we cannot thank them enough for their continued support.
The class of 2015 received $160,000 in community scholarships. We had many returning scholarships and added 20 new scholarships to our program.
As we start the 2015-2016 school year, I will meet with seniors to talk about financial aid and scholarship opportunities, including our community scholarships. Please let me know if you are interested in learning more about this opportunity or would like to make a scholarship donation to the class of 2016.
For many of our students the cost of college is a stretch and they are working part-time jobs as well as seeking scholarship funds. We have many first generation students attending college and many who struggle to meet the basic necessities.
We hope to build this program to continue to award scholarships to our hardworking and deserving seniors of the graduating class 2016!
Class of 2015:
Congratulations on your 2015 Community Scholarship!
To receive your scholarship, please show proof of college enrollment by October 1, 2015. Examples of proof may include a tuition bill or class schedule.
Please bring me a personalized hand written thank you note for your scholarship donor. Our local community members are incredibly supportive of our seniors, and we want to make sure that they realize how much we appreciate them. I will send the thank you note to the scholarship donor for you.
Scholarship checks will be sent directly to your institution. If you pay your tuition bill and show proof of payment, your check may be written to you for reimbursement on a case-by-case basis.
A scholarship may be deferred for up to two years. To defer your scholarship, you must show proof an approved college deferment (humanitarian/ religious service, military service or other approved deferment requests). If you do not defer your admissions and do not collect your scholarship by October 1st, 2015, your scholarship will go back to the donor or to the general scholarship fund.
