The Pennsylvania House of Representatives Scholarship
Deadline March 1
The Pennsylvania House of Representatives’ Scholarship Program enhances educational opportunities for eligible students who reside in Pennsylvania. The program is privately funded by individual and corporate donors; no tax or other public funds are used. The program is administered by The Foundation for Enhancing Communities (a 501 (c) (3) community foundation) and uses the nowU Pennsylvania 529 College Savings Program at the State Treasury Department to ensure that the scholarships keep pace with tuition inflation (nowU, formerly TAP 529, was established by the Pennsylvania General Assembly in 1992).
The program provides four-year scholarships to two high school seniors per year. Each award consists of the value of one semester of tuition at the State System of Higher Education for each of four years. Eligible educational institutions include nearly all colleges, universities, and career schools in Pennsylvania. Half of each annual award will be paid in the fall semester, and half in the spring semester. Students must maintain eligibility criteria in all four years in order to receive ongoing awards.
Scholarship awards must be used for tuition & fees and books only. Each award disbursement will be paid jointly to the student and to the educational institution in order to ensure proper use of funds.
*Children of legislators and their staff members are not eligible.

Edgar Snyder & Associates “Words to be Heard” Scholarship
This year Edgar Snyder & Associates will offer a $2,500 scholarship to a graduating high school senior through our “Words to be Heard” scholarship contest. Three runners-up will also receive $500 toward their college educations.
We are asking seniors to write a 1,500 to 2,000 word essay answering the following question:
A friend of yours was killed in a car crash following a party where alcohol was being served. Their blood-alcohol level was .10. What could you, as a friend, have done to prevent this accident? What can be done as a community to get the message out to your peers that underage drinking and driving is dangerous?
Edgar Snyder & Associates believes that no one knows the answer to this question better than teenagers themselves who may have already experienced a similar situation in their lives. Hopefully this contest will give valuable insight on ways to prevent underage drinking locally.
Students interested in the “Words to be Heard” scholarship contest must complete the application form and submit their 1,500 to 2,000 word essay on or before January 31, 2014 to be eligible.
If you have any questions, contact the Senior High Guidance Office.
