Cora Fisher scholarship applications now available

Special to the Press-Leader

The Frederick School Enrichment Foundation has announced that applications for the Cora Fisher Scholarship for 2015 graduates of Frederick High School are now available at the high school counselor’s office.

The scholarship will permit any 2015 graduate of Frederick High School, who is a full-time student, has completed 24 hours of course work during the fist year or their collegiate career, has obtained a 2.0 GPA, and is enrolled as a full-time student for the first semester of his/her sophomore year.

Also, any student who is enrolled in a full-time career technology program and has completed the full-time course worked during the first two semesters on a satisfactory basis will qualify for a $250.00 stipend for the first semester of his/her second year of the career technology program.

All funds will be paid directly to the college or technology center where the student it enrolled.

Loyd Benson, Chairman of the Foundation, stated that “The Foundation Board believes that this will be an incentive to those students who wish to continue their education for the first semester of their sophomore year, either in their college course or technology program. In this time of high unemployment, students who obtain additional education will have a better opportunity for the jobs that are available.”

Applications can be obtained at the high school counselor’s office or Benson Law Firm; and completed applications, with a copy of the transcript for first year and enrollment for the first semester, sophomore year, must be returned by September 1, 2016, to the Frederick High School Counselor’s office or Benson law Firm, 124 N. 9th Street, Frederick.
