Hoosier Uplands offers scholarship
Hoosier Uplands will once again offer one scholarship to a graduating high school senior from each high school within the five-county area it serves: Crawford, Lawrence, Martin, Orange and Washington.
The scholarships were initiated in 1993 by the Hoosier Uplands Board of Directors to promote post-secondary education in the social service, health and education fields. This is the 29th year for the scholarships.
As of fall 2020, Hoosier Uplands had presented 242 students with a total $335,950 in scholarship funds.
A scholarship of $1,400 will be awarded to one graduating senior chosen from each school who wants to pursue a career in the social services, health or education fields and who exhibits a financial need.
The selection will be made by each school’s scholarship committee and/or school foundation.
Seniors should inquire about the application process through their high school counselor and/or community school foundation, not Hoosier Uplands.
All applications must be returned to the high school counselor who oversees the scholarship program and/or community school foundation by the deadline given by each high school.
