Attention High School Seniors – You can now apply for a Pennsylvania House of Representatives Scholarship to help cover the costs of higher education.
Each year, two students preparing
for post-secondary education are awarded four-year scholarships through
the program. It is open to graduating high school seniors who are
Pennsylvania residents with plans to attend a Pennsylvania college,
university or career school as a full-time student.
Students must have attained a
minimum 3.0 cumulative grade point average in high school in order to be
eligible for the scholarship. A student’s commitment to community,
leadership qualities, extracurricular activities and financial need are
also taken into consideration.
To apply, interested students should visit my website, www.RepGabler.com, and go to “Education Information” on the left navigation bar for more information and an application.
No tax money or other public funds are used.
