Thousand Islands area high school graduates are eligible for assistance for educational opportunities beyond high school. Preference will be given to students who reside in the Thousand Islands Central School District and who are graduating or have graduated from Thousand Islands High School. A student must have attended a Thousand Islands area high school for at least one year. A non-traditional student (defined as a student who has graduated previously from a Thousand Islands area high school and who now wishes to pursue a form of higher education) is also eligible. He/she must be accepted at an institution of higher education at the time of application. Most scholarships will be for one year only; there is one four-year scholarship.
Most importantly, it is the Foundation’s policy that applicants make a clear demonstration of financial need, after consideration of all other resources available to them, including parents’ financial resources and other scholarships and grants that may be available to such applicant. The applicant must further show academic ability and dedication, as educational assistance grants will only be made available to those persons dedicated to pursuing their further education and likely to be successful at such pursuit.
Amount of Grants & Awarding:
A determination of the amount of any grant shall be made by the Foundation based on available Foundation funds and the merits of individual cases. Recipients will be notified at graduation. The aid will be paid to the student at the beginning of the second semester based on successful completion of the first semester. The student will be required to provide the Foundation with a copy of his first semester grades before the issuance of a check. The student will need at least a 2.0 average on a 4.0 scale for the first semester.
