College is a crucial step in preparing the youth of today for their future careers, but it is becoming increasingly inaccessible.

As college becomes increasingly necessary for many job options, many students feel they have no choice but to pursue higher education for the sake of their future careers. With the costs of tuition, textbooks, and daily living expenses all on the rise, attaining a college degree is often impossible without going into significant debt.

This scholarship seeks to support students who are preparing to transition to college so they have the resources necessary to succeed.

Any high school senior in West Virginia who will be pursuing a two or four-year degree program after graduation may apply for this scholarship. Those from Harrison, Dodoridge, Marion, Tyler, Ritchie, Wetzel and Taylor counties are preferred.

To apply, tell us about a personal accomplishment you have achieved and what skills you demonstrated in order to do so.
