Skilled Trades Scholarship

Selection of Recipient
The Selection Committee will interview candidates based on nominations presented by teachers and staff of FHS. Candidates will participate in an interview with the selection committee. Academic and extracurricular information play a secondary role in helping the Selection Committee get a fuller picture of the applicant, but these are not the basis on which the award is determined. Financial need does not play a role in determining the award winner.


The Selection Committee reserves the right to decide, on a case-by-case basis, to contact applicants for phone interviews or to request additional materials. The award will be presented at the Senior Awards Night.


Payment of Scholarship
The Franklin Educational Foundation will process the scholarship award and mail it directly to the recipient’s post-secondary educational institution. Funds will be disbursed directly to the school in August or September 2022 for the Fall semester. It will be the student’s responsibility to submit to the Foundation at that time proof of enrollment, which includes their student ID#.
