Palatine High Booster Club offers scholarships
The Palatine High School Pirate Booster Club is accepting applications for its 46th annual Scholarship Program.
These scholarships will be awarded to deserving members of the Palatine High School graduating class of 2020 wishing to further their education. Up to 14 graduating seniors may receive a $1,000 scholarship.
Twelve of these scholarships are named in honor of Fred Zajonc, who was a community leader, village trustee and longtime member and past president of the Pirate Booster Club.
The 13th scholarship, the "Charlotte M. and Robert C. Donahue Millennium Scholarship," was donated by Palatine High School alumni Andy and Patrick Donahue in honor of their parents, the late Charlotte and Robert Donahue.
This year, an additional scholarship will be offered by the Palatine High School graduating Class of 1979. The "Legacy Scholarship" will follow the same selection criteria as the Booster and Millennium scholarships.
Completed applications must be turned in to Marla Morrissey in the main office at Palatine High School by 3:45 p.m. Monday, March 16.
Applicants must be attending a four-year college/university, two-year community college or a certified trade/vocational school. Minimum 2.0 GPA is needed. If an applicant has less than a 2.0 average, but has extenuating circumstances, submit the completed application along with a separate, typed statement of explanation.
The scholarship committee is looking for students who have demonstrated outstanding leadership, academic excellence, service and volunteerism at Palatine High School and in the community.
