With the 2014 scholarship awards granted, the PMYF has exceeded one million dollars in scholarships granted since 1990. In 2014 the Foundation received 168 applications. Each application is read in full, and carefully weighed for it’s merits by the Educational Endowment Fund Committee.
This year saw applications from all walks of life, covering students in fields from nursing to engineering, from many counties throughout the Commonwealth. Students were required to write an essay about their most meaningful achievement and how it relates to their field of study. The committee was able to award over $179,000 to 59 students who will use the money to aid them in earning a degree. Some of these are multi-year awards, contingent upon the recipient maintaining a 3.0 GPA. All applicants will receive written notification of the committee’s selections in the coming weeks.
Congratulations to all of our recipients and thank you to our donors who make this program possible!
