Park City High School Community Scholarship Program
2015 is our 28th year of the Community Scholarship Program. This 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.
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 2015!
If you are interested in making a donation to the Community Scholarship fund, please contact Heather Heinz Briley, the PCHS Scholarship Advisor. You an also donate through the Live PC Give PC Donors program on November 7th. Here is a link for more information http://livepcgivepc.razoo.com/story/Pcscholarships
Below are the steps in the Community Scholarship Process:
1. Each donor determines the criteria for the recipient of his/her/their Community Scholarship. The donor will provide the name, dollar amount and quantity of scholarships, as well as the criteria. Last year’s criteria ranged from one to 14 criteria for a scholarship. Examples of criteria may include: top 1/3 of class, minimum 3.0 GPA, Obstacles overcome, serious challenges, physical challenges, community service, leadership, number of AP classes, spiritual commitment, demonstrated Americanism, etc. Some donors give multiple awards, while others leave the option open to split money into multiple awards, depending on the desires of the review committee.
2. In the spring, seniors may apply to the Community Scholarship through the Application. They typically apply for the scholarships for which they best meet the criteria that are established by the donor.
3. A review committee consisting of at least three people, sometimes including the donor, is established for each scholarship. After reviewing applications for a single scholarship, the review committee selects the senior who best matches the criteria of the donor.
4. Awards are held at the end of the school year. Students must provide proof of college enrollment in order to receive their tuition scholarship.
