Paul Hyland Harris Memorial Scholarships
Application status: Closed

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 scholarships 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 Paul Hyland Harris Memorial Scholarships must:

  • Be seniors or graduates of a high school located in Crawford County, Venango County, or Warren County in Pennsylvania.
  • Be planning to enroll in full-time undergraduate study at Allegheny College or Harvard University for the entire upcoming academic year.

Children of the Paul Hyland Harris Memorial Scholarships Trust and PNC Bank employees are ineligible.


If selected as a recipient, the student will receive an award in an amount determined by the Trustee scholarship committee.

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.

Awards may be used for tuition, room and board and related educational fees, and required books.


All applicants will be notified in late April.

Payment of Scholarships

Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of the Trustee. Payment is made in August.
