Oneida Scholarship Fund Now Accepting Applications

Posted Wednesday, January 2, 2019

Each year the Oneida Scholarship Fund offers grants to adults living in St. Paul’s West Seventh neighborhood who need financial help with a post-secondary education.

About Oneida Scholarship Fund

The Oneida Scholarships, now administered through Keystone Community Services, are a legacy from the Oneida Education Center whose mission was to provide quality adult education classes and to strive to improve individuals’ lives through education. After the Oneida Education Center closed, the scholarship program was established to help make our community stronger by promoting education among West Seventh residents.

Now Accepting Applications for the 2019 Scholarship

Are you an adult living in the West Seventh Community who needs financial help with your post-secondary education?  Through the application, recipients demonstrate financial need, contributions to the community, clear educational goals, and capacity to be successful. Applications are available now and must be submitted no later than February 28, 2019. Awards will be announced in May 209 and all funds must be used  by December 31, 2019.
