It's great that these scholarships are offered! I would suggest that you consider offering scholarships to students attending 2 year schools or trade programs as well, since we've been seeing lately, they are a better post high school option for many people. It also makes good financial sense to attend a two year community college and then transfer to a four year school, and being money savvy and frugal deserves rewards as well.
