|Amount||1 scholarship(s) of $1,000 each. (total annual contribution: $1,000)|
|Award notes||One time award.|
Each school’s scholarship committee will select a nominee for this scholarship and submit the name to the Foundation. The scholarship committee is strongly encouraged to seek the input of the MLL teachers and staff before making their selection. If more than one high school has a qualified recipient, then the Foundation will make the final selection. An alternate shall be selected annually and the scholarship shall be awarded to that individual if the primary award winner does not meet the requirements of the scholarship.
About the Multilingual Learner Program
Franklin Pierce School District is privileged to encompass a growing number of Multilingual Learners that walk our halls and bring a rich diversity to the classroom.
These students face challenges each day as they are learning English while grasping grade level academic concepts. This educational challenge is coupled with adapting to a new home and new culture. Many families have immigrated to our country seeking quality educational opportunities for their children as they share our belief of education as the key to a better life. Many of our students are first generation high school graduates.
The success and determination that a Multilingual Learner exhibits is an inspiration to staff and peers alike. The service they will contribute to the community is invaluable.
