About the Program
In 2015, the Manual PTSA reviewed our scholarship program and found that it had been years since we updated the application process or increased the funding. So, thanks to everyone who joined the PTSA and donated to the budget we were able to, under the leadership of the PTSA Board (most especially Scholarship Chairs Denise Mallett and Judith Bradley), simplify our application process and make it digital; increase our scholarship budget from $1,000 to $3,000; and increase the number of scholarships from two to five, including the addition of a “No Barriers” Scholarship for a student who has overcome significant obstacles.
We were thrilled to be able to honor 5 Manual scholars at the 2016 Manual Scholarship Reception. Their applications were impressive, to say the least. They were filled with great grades, test scores, AP classes, extracurricular activities, athletics, community service… all of those tremendous opportunities available to them because they are brave, and they work really hard; and because their parents & teachers are dedicated, and support them; and their school & its administration both challenge and nurture them. Our scholarship committee considered all of their qualifications, and they had a really, really hard time ranking such a close field of applicants.
