The VPC Community Involvement Scholarship is awarded to high school seniors or college students who will be continuing their education in the fall at a vocational/technical, two-year, or four-year college. Applicants must have a grade point average of 3.0 or higher on a 4.0 scale at the time of application. The winners will be those applicants who best demonstrate service to and involvement with their “communities” -- defined broadly as a geographic community, school community, or sports/hobby/activity community.
Multiple winners will be selected. The largest scholarship, the Kathleen Eovino Memorial Scholarship, will be given out in honor of our late PEZ Community member and long-time educator Kathleen Eovino. The applicant selected for this scholarship will be the one who best demonstrates the positive and/or innovative contributions they have made to improve their respective communities. The applicant may provide this information by essay, video, or any artistic/graphic medium that demonstrates the requested characteristics.
