$500.00 Scholarship for each school district.
The first of many programs that PUSH BC (“PUSH”) spearheaded was to raise philanthropic funds for promising high school students who make a commitment to educate themselves here in Beaver County. PUSH feels strongly that schools such as Geneva College, Penn State Beaver and the Community College of Beaver County offer tremendous educational opportunity and variety for our students. We feel that local high school students who choose Beaver County facilities of higher learning have a much higher potential for staying within the County to make a positive contribution.
As a result of our fundraising endeavors, PUSH is able to offer one graduating senior student, who meets the criteria and has committed to a Beaver County institute for higher learning, a $500.00 scholarship. We are able to offer these scholarships to a student from each of the public, private and cyber school districts and, at this point in PUSH’s organizational growth, we want to put our fund raising dollars to work as quickly as possible. As a result, we are leaving the decision to choose one student at the discretion of the individual school district principles, guidance counselors, and appropriate teachers.
If you have any questions in regards to PUSH, or any of our programs, please do not hesitate to contact me at your earliest opportunity. We thank you for your time, our organization looks forward to helping you achieve your educational goals.
The application is available through your Guidance Counselor.
