The Toledo Public Schools Foundation, formerly Scholars of Toledo, is set to award scholarships this year in the amounts of $1,000 and $1,500 to eligible seniors in the district.

A student graduating in 2016 is eligible if he or she has a cumulative grade point average of 2.0 or above (unless otherwise noted by specific scholarship requirement); is seeking a post-secondary education at an accredited higher learning institution as a part-time or full-time student, and is involved in extracurricular activities, volunteerism, leadership roles, organizations and/or internships and work programs.

Qualified students must complete an application and essay and supply recommendations.
