Peters Family Foundation Scholarship
Website: The Peters Family Foundation
The Peters Family Foundation was established in 2000 by Janice and Michael Peters. This is a small private foundation directed by the founders into areas of their interest; culture, health, education and medicine. Grants are made to organizations and to a limited number of individuals in pursuit of post secondary educational opportunities.
The Scholarship Program is designed to assist high school and college students residing in King County Washington, with a financial need, who demonstrate potential to excel in post secondary educational opportunities.
The Foundation plans to award up to four scholarships annually and the amount of the award will depend upon the students' unmet financial needs and their demonstrated potential to excel in post secondary educational opportunities. The Foundation will accept recommendations and applications on a rolling basis. The Foundation encourages students/applicants to pursue the highest quality education and to pursue their interests. Any course of study at any accredited, secular, private or public four-year post secondary educational institution maintaining a regular faculty and curriculum is accepted.
Applicants must be recommended by their high school counselor or teacher (or a college professor or teacher) with sufficient knowledge of the applicant's potential to excel in post secondary educational opportunities. The Foundation's Trustees will evaluate all application materials, check with supporting references, and select the scholarship recipients. Potential recipients may be asked to participate in a personal interview.
Financial assistance, plus other benefits, are awarded to students who are residents of the state of Washington and citizens of the United States. At least one family member or person the applicant lived with during high school must also be a resident of the state of Washington.
Recipients will be selected on the basis of:
- minimum cumulative GPA of 3.00+ or a GED score of 260+
- financial need
- community service
- work ethic
- demonstration of personal initiative
- an intense personal curiosity
- US Citizen
