Agnes Liles Trust Scholarship: The Education Foundation in partnership with UCPS is pleased to have the honor of awarding six $5,000 scholarships to Union County seniors on behalf of the Agnes Liles Trust. Agnes Liles was a hairdresser and her husband was a bus driver in Union County for many years. The trust states that the scholarships be granted to students with “character, demonstration of a desire to improve the general condition, and a willingness to work.” These scholarships will be paid directly to the student’s college of choice and are renewable for four years depending on the student’s ability to maintain an adequate grade point average. The application is due May 2nd via email or school courier to Amy Sperry in the Central Services building. Any applications that are not complete will be disqualified from consideration. Students may be asked to complete an in person interview with the scholarship committee composed of community volunteers and a UCPS Director. Recipients will be notified by mid-May regarding the status of their application.
For most scholarships, you will apply directly to the organization sponsoring the scholarship. For scholarships listed that require high school nomination, please contact Jessica Kanna to express interest by the listed deadline. She will contact you if additional information is needed in order for your information to be presented to the scholarship nomination committee. To help the guidance department with knowing which scholarships you may be interested or qualified for, please remember to be filling out your Senior Student Profile Sheet and resume to the guidance department ASAP if you haven't already done so.
