Applying for a Scholarship:

The Bill Pickett Memorial Scholarship Fund awards scholarships annually to outstanding students to further their education.   Recipients are selected based on academic achievement, character, school and community involvement.  Awards can be used for full or part time study at a technical school, a community college or a four-year university.  Students must have already applied for or been accepted into a school at the time they apply for funding. 

Applicants must meet all of the eligibility requirements and deadlines to qualify. Awards must be applied towards tuition, room and board, books and fees.  Individuals applying for a scholarship must forward a complete application packet and it must be postmarked before the application deadline.  Incomplete packets will not be considered.  Checks will be made payable to the educational institution or student.
