The Franklin Pierce, GATES, and Washington High Schools’ scholarship committees will each select a student for this scholarship and submit a nomination to the Franklin Pierce Foundation. Individual students may also submit a self-nomination. The nomination should include the name of the student, documentation of official community service hours, a narrative describing any undocumented service to others, and how the student might like to use their higher education to continue their service to others.

The donors will also select an alternate and the scholarship shall be awarded to that individual if the primary award winner does not meet the requirements of the scholarship.
