Patriot Scholarship Program
Application status: Closed

Patriot Equities has established a scholarship program to assist high school seniors attending Norristown Area High School in Norristown, PA, Central High School in Philadelphia, PA, or Cheltenham High School in Wyncote, PA who are Black, African American, Hispanic or Latino and plan to continue their education in college or vocational school programs.

This 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.

Applicants to the Patriot Scholarship Program must:

  • Be high school seniors attending Norristown Area High School in Norristown, PA, Central High School in Philadelphia, PA, or Cheltenham High School in Wyncote, PA
  • Be Black, African American, Hispanic or Latino
  • Plan to enroll in fulltime undergraduate study at an accredited two- or four-year college, university or vocational-technical school for the entire upcoming academic year

Selection of Recipients

Scholarship recipients are selected on the basis of:

  • Academic record
  • Demonstrated leadership and participation in school and community activities
  • Work experience
  • Statement of educational and career goals and objectives
  • Unusual personal or family circumstances
  • An online recommendation.

Financial need, as calculated by Scholarship America, must be demonstrated for the student to receive an award.

Selection of recipients is made by Scholarship America. Not all applicants to the program will be selected as recipients. All applicants agree to accept the decision as final.

Awards

If selected as a recipient, the student will receive a $5,000 award. Up to 2 awards will be granted. Awards may be renewed for up to three additional years or until a bachelor’s degree is earned, whichever occurs first for a maximum aggregate award of $20,000 ($5,000 per year over four total years). Renewal is contingent upon satisfactory academic performance.

Awards are for undergraduate study only.

All applicants will be notified in April.
