|Open to||For district-wide competition|
These scholarships are funded by donations to the Franklin Pierce Foundation mainly from district personnel through payroll deductions and one-time donations.
The scholarship will be awarded to twelve outstanding graduates from the high school programs in the Franklin Pierce School District to apply toward their post-secondary education. These scholarships are based on distinguished-level work in the student’s Navigation portfolios and portfolio presentations. Two alternates will also be selected.
|Amount||12 scholarship(s) of $1,000 each. (total annual contribution: $12,000)|
|Award notes||One time award.|
Students will be nominated by building teams and should meet the distinguished criteria for both portfolio and portfolio presentation by the school-based judging panel. If a student does not meet the distinguished criteria as determined by the judging panel, and the school team believes he or she should still be nominated, then building teams should have strong evidence that the student will meet the criteria set forth by district judging panels. Distinguished criteria are outlined in the attached rubrics.
The district judging panels will consist of three to five members. Every effort should be made to include at least three of the following groups on each panel: Franklin Pierce Schools’ Board of Directors, Franklin Pierce Foundation members, community business leaders, higher education, or other local citizens. Students nominated will be notified of the time and location for their district presentation.
Special considerations: Students will be notified no later than June 6th whether or not they have been awarded the Distinguished Navigation Scholarship, or if they are an alternate.
