  • Scholarship Description
  • This scholarship was inspired by a story James McCavitt saw in the paper about the Sze Lee Memorial Scholarship, a scholarship formerly administered by Peninsula Community Foundation. He set up the scholarship in honor of his parents, James A. McCavitt and Annie LePors McCavitt. Mr. McCavitt hopes they will be remembered throughout the Tussey Mountain School District and the Broad Top area in Pennsylvania as model parents who would want others to benefit from their words: "Get an education and make something of yourselves."

    Applicants must be a current graduating senior from the Tussey Mountain School District in Pennsylvania who will have completed all four years at his/her school and be planning to enroll on a full-time basis in a college or university in the fall. Demonstrated financial need and desire to contribute knowledge in service-oriented areas of study such as education, nursing, law enforcement, medical research or social work is required. For more information or to apply, please visit the scholarship provider's website.
