Scholarship now available for FSHS students

Tuesday, January 8, 2013

East Tennessee Foundation has announced the availability of the Strader Family Fort Scott High School Scholarship for Fort Scott High School students for the 2013-2014 school year. East Tennessee Foundation scholarship information and applications for 2013 are now available at www.easttennesseefoundation.org.

The Strader Family Fort Scott High School Scholarship was established to provide scholarship assistance to graduating seniors of Fort Scott High School in Fort Scott, who possess great potential, but who may not otherwise qualify for financial assistance based upon academic achievement.

ETF scholarship program requirements range from financial need to scholastic achievement. Several scholarships are targeted toward specific schools or counties, students involved in certain extracurricular activities, or those who may not display the highest scholastic rankings yet still possess great potential and motivation. Others are geared toward students pursuing a specific field, such as business or nursing, a news release said.

In fall 2012, more than $185,000 was disbursed in scholarship awards for 124 students participating in ETF scholarship programs. Scholarships provided through ETF help fulfill the dreams of those students wishing to obtain a secondary education, whether they are graduating high school seniors or returning adult students.

Scholarships administered by ETF allow individuals and groups to honor loved ones while helping change the lives of those pursuing higher education. Many of the scholarships have been established to honor the memory of a lost parent, spouse or child. Some have been founded to honor coaches or prominent community leaders.

For more information, contact Beth Heller, ETF scholarship and program officer, at (865) 524-1223, toll free at 1-877-524-1223 or by email at bheller@etf.org. For additional information about the scholarships available through ETF, please visit www.easttennesseefoundation.org.
