FPS staff report

HARCATUS Tri-County CAO, in collaboration with the Corporation for Ohio Appalachian Development (COAD) and the Ohio Appalachian Center for Higher Education (OACHE), is offering the COAD David V. Stivison Appalachian Scholarship.

The scholarship is for economically disadvantaged students in the 30-county COAD service area who want to attend an institution of higher education, but lack the required resources to do so. High school seniors and non-traditional students residing in Harrison, Carroll or Tuscarawas County are encouraged to apply.

The completed scholarship application and required documentation must be postmarked or received by March 1, 2013 to be considered for the academic year beginning in September 2013. Incomplete applications will not be considered. Submissions will be accepted at HARCATUS Tri-County CAO, 220 Grant St., Dennison, OH 44621 or HARCATUS Family Support Center, 140 W. High Ave., Suite B., New Philadelphia, OH 44663.

Scholarship application forms and additional information are available at all area High Schools and Vocational Schools, or via the Internet website www.coadinc.org.

One individual will be selected to represent each county in the HARCATUS service area:  Harrison, Carroll, and Tuscarawas County. The top overall student will receive a one-time award of $500 from HARCATUS. All three students selected will be forwarded to the COAD Scholarship Selection Committee where they each will receive $500 in scholarship funds.
