The Margaret W. & Irvin Lesher Foundation Scholarship assists students who resided in Rimersburg, Toby Township, or Madison Township in Clarion County, PA during their senior year of high school.
The program is administered by Scholarship America®, the nation’s largest designer and manager of scholarship, tuition assistance, and other education support programs for corporations, foundations, associations, and individuals. Eligibility for individual programs is determined at the sole discretion of the sponsor, and eligible applications are reviewed by Scholarship America’s evaluation team.

Financial need will also be considered and must be demonstrated for the student’s application to be considered.
Once finalists are selected, a committee established by PNC Institutional Investments, Trustee, will select recipients.
