PNC Bank, N.A. Vernon Lehr Memorial Scholarship Fund has established a scholarship program to assist high school seniors from qualified high schools in Pennsylvania who 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 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.
Up to four awards will be granted – one to an application from each high school, if the applicant pool allows.
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 course of study.
Awards are for undergraduate study only.
Applicants will be notified in June. Not all applicants to the program will be selected as recipients.
Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of the PNC Bank, N.A. Vernon Lehr Memorial Scholarship Fund. Payments are made in one installment in early August.
Financial need will be considered. Recipients must demonstrate need.
Scholarship America will evaluate and forward all eligible applicants to PNC Bank, Trustee. An outside scholarship committee will review applicant data, including all essays responses, and select recipients. Not all applicants to the program will be selected as recipients. All applicants agree to accept the decision as final.
One online recommendation form must be submitted on your behalf no later than March 20, 2024 4:00 pm Eastern Time.
