The Palo Verde Ridge Scholarship Foundation has reviewed all applications from the 2014 Scholarship Year. The decision process was challenging due to the high caliber of candidates who applied, and we wish all the best to those who applied.
Three scholarship awards were for the 2014 Scholarship Year:
In 2014, the Foundation was unable to offer a second $5,000 per year vocational/technical scholarship, due to IRS regulations and an insufficient number of applicants. We hope that additional candidates will apply in 2015 so that we may award all available scholarships.
