In our 2006/2007 Scholarship cycle we awarded 33 recipients over $60,000 dollars to assist them in continuing their education. Scholarship eligibility varies according to the specific criteria of the Scholarship Fund that was established by the fund's donor. Please review the information regarding eligibility and criteria as each Scholarship Fund is unique.
