PARISHVILLE — Parishville High School graduating seniors and their parents or guardians are being encouraged to beat the June 1 deadline to apply for the $500 Kiwanis Scholarship created to help a graduating 2020 student.

To qualify for the scholarship, the student must:

n if selected to receive scholarship money, provide the Potsdam Kiwanis Club with proof of enrollment at the college or university named on the application. Such proof would be a course schedule, receipt from the registrar’s office, etc.;

n while a student of the selected college or university, maintain status as a full-time student for a period of at least two semesters after receipt of the scholarship and must maintain passing grades as designated by the college or university. Failure to accomplish these may result in the forfeiture or repayment of your award.

Deadline for application submission is June 1 and can be made to jimenezboys3637@gmail.com or postmarked by that date and mailed to Potsdam Kiwanis Club Secretary, PO Box 793, Potsdam, NY 13676.
