As part of our education programming, and on behalf of Bob & Phyllis Henigson, the Funhouse Com- mons will award an annual college scholarship of up to $32,000 for a four-year college or university to one graduate of Orcas Island High School. This scholarship is for students who do not have the resources to finance their education without financial support. The student selected will also, in the words of Robert Henigson, “demonstrate real motivation to receive a higher degree.”
The program is structured so that the scholarship recipient will be awarded $8,000 per year for four years, subject to the enrollment and performance standards outlined below.
Applicants will be required to submit their completed application in PDF format by May 1. These will be reviewed by a selection committee, and scored on a point system with the following weighting: determination to succeed (30%), academic performance (25%), financial need (25%), community service (15%) and future plans (5%).
Please email completed applications to firstname.lastname@example.org. Letters of recommendation are to be submitted independently by the recommender in a sealed envelope, by mail or hand-delivered, to the Funhouse Commons. If delivered by post, it is the responsibility of the student to contact the Funhouse Commons and ensure that Letters of Recommendation are received in time to meet the May 1 deadline.
The committee will meet to determine the scholarship recipient, and announce the recipient at the annual Graduation Ceremonies. The funds, and monitoring of the student’s progress through college, will be the responsibility of the Funhouse Commons administration.
