Supporting Deserving Students in Our Community
In 2017, the Pearson Butler team founded our scholarship reimbursement program, which provides college scholarships to high school seniors. These scholarships are selected and sponsored by our executive committee.
Instead of awarding scholarships based on grades, extracurricular involvements, or athletic ability, we award scholarships to recipients who have faced and overcome difficult challenges. The program is designed to benefit students who may not have access to the same resources as their peers but have worked hard to pursue higher education opportunities.
We ask interested students to write essays about their experiences with challenges they have encountered and how they overcame those challenges. The goal of our selection process is to choose inspiring applicants who may not receive scholarships through other outlets.
When Can Students Apply?
We work with local high school scholarship coordinators each year to invite high school seniors to apply. Essay applications are accepted each spring, February 1st through the first Friday of April. Winners are selected and notified by May.
Since establishing our scholarship program, we’ve already been able to issue tens of thousands of dollars to inspiring students in need. We are excited to see our scholarship program continue to grow and help students in our community achieve their dreams.
