2019 Township Scholarship Information Now Available

The 2019 East Donegal Township Board of Supervisors Scholarship Program information, and application, is now available for pick-up at the Township Office, 190 Rock Point Road, or can be downloaded HERE.

The program awards a $1,000 scholarship to a graduating senior currently attending Donegal High School, and a resident of East Donegal Township, that plans to further their education as a full-time student at an accredited junior college, college, university, or vocational school.  Award money is for one year only and for the purposes of tuition, books, and fees only. 

A scholarship award selection considers (no priority given) field of study, character, scholastic record, involvement in community work, written recommendations and extracurricular activities of all applicants in determining the scholarship recipient.  Financial need is not an eligibility factor.

Winners will be notified in writing by May 8, 2019 and will be invited to attend the Donegal School District’s Senior Awards Night to be held on Sunday, May 19, 2019.  The winner will also be asked to attend an East Donegal Township Board of Supervisors meeting and have their picture taken for the Township newsletter.

Scholarship awards will be paid directly to the school attended by the scholarship winner upon receipt of verification of enrollment at a college, university, or vocational school, successful completion of one semester of full-time enrollment and invoice of tuition for second semester of enrollment.

Employees and Board of Supervisors of East Donegal Township and their immediate family members are not eligible.
