For four years prior to the pandemic, Alleghenies United Cerebral Palsy had offered a “Be the Future Scholarship” for a total of $1,000 that go to two high school seniors, that will continue their studies and pursue a career in the field of human services (i.e. social work, special education, occupational therapy, etc) at an accredited 4 or 2-year school or a student living with a disability.
We are proud to announce that AUCP will be once again resurrecting the scholarship to be awarded to two high school seniors from the graduating class of 2023.
It is preferred that applicants have at least a 3.0 GPA. However, the GPA is not a strict requirement, AUCP’s hope is to see these scholarships offered to students that might not receive other scholarships. Additionally, the students must have a financial need.
AUCP’s Be the Future Scholarships are funded by the AUCP Community Fund which sponsors the scholarship and other numerous community needs.
Our goal is that these scholarships will make an impact on the future of the young adults in our communities. Over the 4 years (prior to the pandemic), a total of $8,000 has been awarded to 8 different students.
For questions regarding the scholarship or to donate to the fund, please contact Dan Hockenberry at 814-915-4055 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
