Apply for a Landmarks Scholarship in April
For the twenty-second year, thanks to funding support from PHLF’s Brashear Family Named Fund, the McSwigan Family Foundation Fund of The Pittsburgh Foundation, Dollar Bank Foundation, and others, PHLF is offering 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 2020. The deadline to apply is April 21, 2020. Applications can be downloaded HERE, and applicants can learn more about the eligibility requirements and criteria by clicking here.
Since 1999, PHLF has awarded scholarships to 76 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-five of these 90 recipients attended Pittsburgh Public High Schools and 55 attended other schools within Allegheny County.
As part of the Landmarks Scholarship application, students are asked to describe in an essay a place in Allegheny County especially important in their life; these essays–all archived at PHLF–show how our scholarship has helped future preservationists, architects, designers, and planners realize their career dreams and remain connected to the Pittsburgh region. 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 Mary Lu Denny at PHLF. Thank you!
