NEW DEADLINE: 5PM FRIDAY, MAY 8, 2020
Dear MVRCS Class of 2020,
The MVRCS PTO is pleased to announce that we will be offering two PTO Scholarship awards to graduating Seniors this year, each in the amount of $1,000. And, we are also sponsoring a single $1,000 scholarship for a Lady Eagle in memory of MV Math teacher Ms. Emily Kearney Memorial again this year.
The PTO Scholarship awards will be made to two Seniors in recognition of their distinction and excellence in volunteerism and community service. The Scholarship Application package is now available online by clicking the button below, or you may obtain a copy from the College Counseling Office.
The Kearney Scholarship will be made in memory of Ms. Kearney, who passed away in 2016. Her family, in honor of her passion for educating students in Math and the Sciences, created the Emily Kearney Memorial Scholarship and has funded this year’s prize, which the PTO has matched to create the $1,000 award. The scholarship will be given to a deserving young woman to help pursue her chosen career with a focus on either Math or the Sciences, or in education where she teaches Math and/or the Sciences.
Please be aware that the PTO has changed the submission format and the application requirements due to the current school closure. Application packages much be submitted to the Scholarship Committee by EMAIL to the PTO Outreach address. Also, the required Letter(s) of Reference and the Scholastic Standing form may be submitted directly by the reference and the college counselor, in lieu of inclusion in the student’s hardcopy application package. These are also sent to the PTO Outreach email address using a subject line with the student’s name, as appropriate. Please follow the directions in the revised application instructions available via the button links below.
If you have any questions about the two PTO Scholarships or the Kearney Scholarship, please contact the College Counseling office, and they will reach out to the Scholarship Committee on your behalf.
Please read the Scholarship Profile and Scholarship Application carefully! Applications for the Scholarships are due on or before 5pm on Friday, May 8, 2020. The Committee cannot accept late applications. We hope that you will keep the deadline in mind and apply for one of the scholarships.
We wish you all the best of luck as you approach your High School graduation.
PTO Scholarship Chairwoman
