The Region 4 Scholarship Foundation was established in 1993 in memory of deceased regional members. A Scholarship Committee was appointed and the first scholarships were awarded in 1995.
These awards – a youth scholarship (for a graduating high school senior) and an adult scholarship (for a post-high school adult) are presented annually to members in good standing of Region 4 clubs who wish to continue their education beyond high school.
The Region 4 Scholarship Committee would like to encourage your contributions. Pledges in any amount from members, clubs, or interested parties will be gratefully accepted. If a total of at least $5,000 is received in memory of a specific person, one of the annual scholarships will bear that person’s name for five or more years. Currently, both scholarships are available for this honor.
For information, application forms or pledge forms, contact any member of the Region 4 Scholarship Committee .
