  • Scholarship Description
  • The Park Scholar Program offers much more than a scholarship; it creates a dynamic learning community that develops future communications leaders who engage critically, act globally, and perform ethically. Through a mixture of academic and service programming, scholars are challenged to take action and give back to their communities, and to use the power of mass communication to make a positive impact on the world.

    At least 10 merit-based scholarships are awarded to outstanding high school seniors each year. In addition, at least three merit-based scholarships are awarded to Park School rising juniors each spring.

    Upon entering the Park Scholar Program, Park scholars are expected to:
    -Maintain a 3.5 GPA and full-time enrollment in the Park School
    -Engage in significant and meaningful community service
    -Participate in Park scholar activities
    -Be a model citizen and maintain good judicial standing

    In addition, first-year scholars are expected to live with and participate in the H.O.M.E. program, a residential learning community that explores multicultural issues.

    Park Scholar Awards cover the entire cost of attendance (tuition, room, and board) at Ithaca College and include stipends for living expenses, books, and a one-time computer purchase of $2,500. Four-year awards are renewable for up to three years (for a total of eight semesters), while rising junior awards are renewable for a total of four semesters.

Atheist Scholarships Not Welcome in CA School District

June 21, 2016

by Susan Dutca

California's Antelope Valley School District banned atheist scholarships from being listed on student publications and must now pay $10,000 in legal fees. They claimed it would upset parents, "promote anti-religious expression," and have "argumentative" and "aggressive undertones." Freethinkers instead saw it as anti-atheist prejudice. The district was sued by FFRF for refusing to allow [...]
