This scholarship is in honor of Kate and Leo Merlone, who understood the value of education, both in formal academia and through any media that would expand a person's mental horizons. Commitments to family obligations in their youth did not allow them to continue their formal education to the extent that they had desired. Instead, throughout their lives, they chose self-education through books, travel, museums, volunteer involvement in the community and always good conversations. They passed on this message of self-education to their children, even as they encouraged them to pursue a higher education.
Eligibility: - Minimum 3.0 GPA - Attending a Michigan college or university - Pursuing an undergraduate or graduate degree in education - Full-time enrollment - Graduating high school senior or a current college student that graduated (or will graduate) from any high school in Saginaw County
