(UNDATED) – Hoosier Uplands is once again offering one scholarship to a graduating high school senior from each high school in the five counties they serve – Crawford, Lawrence, Martin, Orange, and Washington counties according to Ginger Knight, Director of Administrative Services/Hoosier Uplands Scholarship Program.
The scholarships were initiated in 1993 by the Hoosier Uplands Board of Directors to promote post-secondary education in the social services, health and education fields. This will be the 27th year for the scholarships. As of fall 2018, Hoosier Uplands has presented 220 students with $298,550 in scholarship funds.
The $1,400 scholarship will be awarded to a student applicant from each school who wants to pursue a career in the social services, health or education fields and who exhibit a financial need.
The selection will be made by each school’s scholarship committee and/or the 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.
