Senior Scholarship Application Information
The PTSO is offering senior scholarships to eligible applicants. We encourage all students who meet the criteria to apply. Application criteria and requirements are outlined below. This award acknowledges student academic achievement, school/community involvement, character, and integrity. Your completed application and essay represent your best efforts in the application process. Please plan accordingly, pay attention to detail and be advised of the March 20th deadline.
LATE OR INCORRECTLY SUBMITTED APPLICATIONS WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED!
The Number and amount of scholarships awarded will be determined by the submissions received not to exceed $3,500. Eligible PFHS Seniors who plan to continue their education at institutions of higher learning, i.e. universities, colleges, trade and vocational schools are encouraged to apply. All scholarships will be paid by the PTSO directly to the student.

* School Activities Participation and Awards (including time commitment) (40%)
* Community/Volunteerism/Other Activities and Awards (including time commitment) (30%)
* Essay (30%)
Judges’ scores for each applicant will be weighted, totaled then averaged to determine each applicant’s final score and placement.
