ROYAL OAK PTA COUNCIL SCHOLARSHIP
2020-2021 Scholarship Application
Available the Beginning of February, 2021
(8) $500 Royal Oak PTA Council Scholarships will be awarded
(2) $500 Royal Oak Schools Foundation Scholarships will be awarded
Each of our Royal Oak School PTAs contribute to the funding of the scholarships. Seniors who currently attend Royal Oak public schools and will attend an accredited college, university, or trade school in the fall of the scholarship year, are eligible to apply for the Royal Oak PTA Donald M. Currie Memorial Scholarship. Applicants are judged on academics, character, extracurricular activities within school and the community, volunteer or paid work experience, and financial need. The committee is comprised of PTA parent representatives, one from each of the Royal Oak schools who evaluate all applications received, using a scoring of 1-100. Applicant names are hidden from the applications prior to distribution to the representatives. This year, the students receiving the eight highest scored applications are being awarded scholarships in the amount of $500 each. In addition, this application will be scored with a focus on service and community activity for one of two $500 scholarships from the Royal Oak Education Foundation. All scholarship recipients will be announced and recognized at the Senior Convocation Program. Recipients will be notified of the award prior to receiving the award.
