Scholarship available for Forks students aiming for college; application deadline is July 22

FORKS — Forks residents whose college goals might have been put on hold because of finances or life challenges are encouraged to apply for the Lloyd J. Allen Scholarship through the Peninsula College Foundation.

The deadline to apply is July 22.

The scholarship was created for a Forks High School student who will attend Peninsula College after graduation and is an annual $7,500 award.

The student must be a Forks senior who has demonstrated a financial need.

The scholarship is intended to support a student with the potential to succeed academically but who has experienced unique challenges while attending school that might have prevented such success.

Challenges could include anything from family issues to health crises to a job loss.

As such, the student must include a recommendation letter from a Peninsula College or high school counselor, faculty or staff member who can speak to the particular challenges or obstacles this student faces or has faced.

Preference will be given to a student seeking an associate degree in welding, automotive technology or advanced manufacturing/composites technology.

The scholarship can be applied to tuition, books, instructional supplies and materials, and travel to and from Forks and Port Angeles for the purpose of attending Peninsula College classes.

To apply for available scholarships, visit www.theWashBoard.org.
