The deadline is approaching for seniors in Toledo Public Schools interested in applying for the needs-based Jamie Farr Scholarship.
There will be five scholarships given out this year, each for $3,000 a year for four years, making this a $12,000 scholarship for the lucky recipients. The Jamie Farr Advisory Committee gives preference to TPS students and the minimum household income requirement has been raised this year to $100,000 or below in hopes of attracting more students.
There is a February 15, 2015 application due date. That means the application must be complete, all attachments uploaded and the application submitted for it to be considered.
Here is the link to the application on SmarterSelect: or applicants can go the website of the Toledo Community Foundation,, and click on Scholarships to find it.
