Attention All Seniors in High School! The Community Foundation of the Northern Alleghenies has distributed all post-secondary or vocational school scholarship applications to the high school guidance departments. Each scholarship that is available has a different focus, so check each one out and see if it is right for you. The Foundation added thirteen new high school scholarships this year, this has increased the total scholarships awarded to $190,000 by the Foundation across seven counties.
The Blair Hornung Scholarship and the Gladys Schultz Memorial Scholarship are open to any Cameron County Area High School senior who will be attending a post-secondary school. Also available for high school seniors is the Inez Bull Piano and Ole Bull Violin Scholarships.
Post-secondary music students are also eligible to apply for the Inez Bull Piano or the Ole Bull Violin Scholarships as long as they graduated from a high school in Potter, Tioga, Elk, McKean, Cameron or Clinton County.
