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.
Class of 2016:
The Community Scholarship application is available from April 1st-22nd, 2016. Applications are due to Ms. Briley by 3pm on April 22nd. You can also pick up a paper application from Ms. Briley.
Seniors may apply for up to three scholarships and may be awarded one. Not all applicants will receive a scholarship due to funding. The specific scholarship donor and/or volunteer community members read the applications and select the recipients annually.
Scholarship recipients are celebrated at the Community Scholarship Awards Ceremony May 31st at 8am in the Eccles Center. Applicants will be notified about two weeks prior to the ceremony so they can plan on attending and inviting their friends and family. Many scholarship donors attend the event and will award the recipient with their scholarship.
I expect all recipients to hand write a thank you note to their donor. These are due to Ms. Briley before June 1st.
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.
To request your scholarship:
Students must request their scholarship by submitting proof of enrollment. This includes, receipt of payment, class schedule, etc.
You must request your scholarship by October 1, 2016.
Scholarship checks will be distributed to the institution the students attend. If the student pays tuition and can show a tuition receipt, the scholarship check may be written to the student directly for reimbursement for proof of enrollment 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, 2016, your scholarship will go back to the donor or to the general scholarship fund.
