The Moraine Park Foundation at Moraine Park Technical College has created a new scholarship opportunity for this spring’s area high school graduates.


A $400 general scholarship will be awarded to a high school senior from each of the 27 high schools within the Moraine Park District who plans to attend Moraine Park in fall 2007-08. These scholarships are not restricted to a particular program area or campus.


Eligible candidates must be a Class of 2007 high school graduate within the Moraine Park District, accepted into one of MorainePark’s degree programs and enrolled in a minimum of nine credits per semester at MorainePark. They also must have a high school GPA of 2.75 and maintain a 2.75 GPA or higher while at MorainePark. The application deadline is March 15.


Applications may be obtained from high school guidance counselors, a Moraine Park Financial Aid Office or from www.morainepark.edu/foundation. Scholarship awards will be announced by April 30.


The Moraine Park Foundation also has general and designated scholarships available. Designated scholarships have some restrictions and are based on donations received from individuals, business and industry, community organizations and other foundations. In 2006-07, 124 scholarships were awarded for a total of $102,000; scholarship amounts ranged from $350 to $2,000. The 2007-08 application deadline is June 22. Application and reference
material can be printed from www.morainepark.edu/foundation or obtained from a Moraine Park Financial
Aid Office.
