The objective of the 16th District PTA Scholarship is to give deserving young people the financial means to continue their education. This non-renewable scholarship is awarded to high school seniors attending Fayette County Public Schools. Eligible applicants must have a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.5. Scholarships are awarded based on applicant’s financial need, academic achievement and contribution to the community. The amount of the award varies each year. Applications run from early November until the due date, and award notifications are sent in May.
Thanks to generous donors, we have awarded more than $5 million dollars to support students working to reach their full potential with educational opportunities beyond high school. We manage more than 50 scholarships, each with varying criteria and award amounts. While some of the scholarships are administered through a designated high school or organization, most are administered through our Scholarship Portal where students are matched with more than 25 scholarship opportunities.
