Landmarks Scholarship Applications Must Be Postmarked by April 17
Thanks to funding support from PHLF’s Brashear Family Named Fund, the McSwigan Family Foundation Fund of The Pittsburgh Foundation, and others, PHLF offers a scholarship program for high-achieving, community-minded, high-school seniors in Allegheny County who will be attending college or university in the fall of 2019. If you would like to donate to our Landmarks Scholarship Program to help it grow and to ensure that it continues, please click here or contact Louise Sturgess, executive director of PHLF. Thank you!
“The Landmarks Scholarship recognizes students who have achieved academic excellence and possess the potential to make a difference in the Pittsburgh community and beyond,” said David Brashear, a PHLF trustee and the program founder. “The students selected by our committee already feel connected to the city and its history and will hopefully continue to serve the region as leaders in promoting PHLF’s values.”
Since 1999, PHLF has awarded scholarships to 72 high school seniors who care deeply about the Pittsburgh region. The scholarship award of $6,000, payable over four years to the recipient’s college or university, is for book and tuition expenses only. In addition, PHLF has awarded Honorable Mentions (a one-time gift of $250) to 14 students since 2016. Thirty-four of these 86 recipients attended Pittsburgh Public High Schools and 52 attended other schools within Allegheny County.
