The Paul Hyland Harris Memorial Scholarships assists seniors or graduates of high schools located in Crawford County, Venango County, or Warren County in Pennsylvania. Students must be planning to enroll in full-time undergraduate study at Allegheny College or Harvard University.
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. Awards for this scholarship are granted to eligible recipients without regard to creed, religion, sexual orientation, age, disability, or national origin.
Applicants to the Paul Hyland Harris Memorial Scholarships must:
Children of the Paul Hyland Harris Memorial Scholarships Trust and PNC Bank employees are ineligible.
Scholarship America selects scholarship finalists on the basis of academic performance, demonstrated leadership and participation in school and community activities, work experience, a statement of career and educational goals and objectives, any unusual personal or family circumstances, and an online recommendation.
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, as Trustee, will select recipients.
Not all applicants to the program will be selected as finalists or recipients. All applicants agree to accept decisions as final.
If selected as a recipient, the student will receive an award in an amount determined by the Trustee scholarship committee. Up to twelve (12) 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. Renewal is contingent upon satisfactory academic performance in a full-time undergraduate course of study at Allegheny College or Harvard University.
Awards are for undergraduate study only.
All applicants will be notified in June.
Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of the Trustee. Payment is made in August.
