House of Representatives' Scholarship Program Applications Now Available, Says Metzgar
2/3/2009
Applications are now available for the 2009-10 Pennsylvania House of Representatives’ Scholarship Program. Pennsylvania high school seniors are being urged to apply by Wednesday, April 1, Rep. Carl Walker Metzgar (R-Somerset) announced today.
 
Applicants must have a 3.0 grade point average to apply and will be evaluated on leadership qualities, commitment to their community, extra-curricular activities and financial need.
 
Additionally, applicants are required to write an essay based on the following statement: “On January 1, 2009, Pennsylvania’s new open records law took effect, bringing greater transparency to government at all levels in the Commonwealth. Openness in government is key to democracy and it is expected that the effect of the new law will be widely felt. Discuss the impact and substance of this law favoring broader public access to public records.”
 
The scholarship can be renewed for each of four years of college and is the value of one semester of tuition at a State System of Higher Education school (approximately $2,500 for the 2009-10 academic year). However, recipients may attend any eligible Pennsylvania public or private post-secondary institution.  
 
Students may also be eligible to receive matching funds from SAGE Scholars Inc. (Savings and Growth for Education) and the Pennsylvania Higher Education Assistance Agency’s (PHEAA) PATH Program. Recipients’ names are automatically submitted to PHEAA, and a matching award may be granted based upon financial need.
 
The House Scholarship Program was established in 2003 by the state House of Representatives and is independently administered by The Foundation for Enhancing Communities. It is not affiliated with any political party.
 
The House program is funded by donations from organizations and individuals, including former and current House members, as well as proceeds from various special events.
