Building stronger communities doesn’t just happen. It requires the efforts of many – each bringing their own unique talents, insights, strengths, abilities and willingness to make a difference. Holdingford is a community that was built on hard work, caring for our neighbors, and above all, a belief in the power of education.

Each year, the number of students that will receive awards is based on the annual earnings of the fund’s principal. Since 2013 we have awarded 20 graduates with scholarships to help them pursue their education at a community, technical or four-year college.

Scholarships are awarded based on the following criteria:

  • Currently enrolled senior at Holdingford High School;
  • Application is complete, accurate and instructions were followed;
  • Plans to enroll in an accredited post-secondary education program;
  • Actively involved in the school and the community and exhibits leadership skills.

Note: Preference may be given to well-qualified applicants who have not yet received any other scholarships.

Students interested in applying for a scholarship should see their guidance counselor.
