PLW/Charles (Chuck) Nelson Scholarship
Since 2001 Parkland Light & Water has teamed up with the Franklin Pierce Foundation to help local students with advanced schooling. Annually, PL&W contributes $1500 to one student residing within their service area.
The Faculty Selection Committee will select one recipient and may also select an alternate that fulfills the following criteria:
Recipient must be a graduating senior of Washington High School and have lived in the PL&W service area throughout their high school education. They must also present a photocopy of their PL&W bill along with their application.
Recipient must have accumulated a grade point average of 3.00 or better throughout the three years of high school.
Recipient must plan to complete an educational program approved by the committee. The program may be through a vocational school, community college, or a university.
Recipient must be a student who has shown good citizenship.
Recipient must certify that they have received less than $4000 in other scholarship/financial grant money for the first year of advanced education.
Upon student registration, the Franklin Pierce Foundation will release the funds to the institution in the name of the student.
*If a student fails to register and attend classes, the scholarship money may be awarded to the selected alternate or be held by the Franklin Pierce Foundation for the following year’s award. Any interest gained from that money held will be contributed to the Foundation.
