Falender Family Meridian High School Endowed Scholarship Fund #523
Provides an annual scholarship award to a graduating Meridian High School senior each year for up to four years assuming acceptable academic progress is made. It will be the responsibility of the student to provide to the Midland Area Community Foundation each year proof of their academic progress and eligibility to continue to receive scholarship awards. The student’s academic progress shall be satisfactory and the student shall be eligible for a scholarship award if the following conditions are met: a) the student shall maintain a cumulative grade point average of at least 2.0 and b) the student shall remain enrolled in a four-year course of study leading to a bachelor’s degree from an accredited college or university. Upon receipt of this information a check will be sent to the school to provide funding for the next year. Every four years a new recipient will be selected unless the current student does not successfully complete the academic progress required in subsequent years. In that event a new student could be selected sooner.
From the fundholder:
We believe that furthering education is the best step we can take to improve the likelihood of a successful future for our world. Hopefully, help for our local students will encourage learning and slightly ease their financial burden.
