The scholarship is awarded to a Susquehanna Community High School student who has achieved a 90% cumulative grade point average at the end of eleventh grade, and who also possesses a sincere desire to pursue high quality university studies with the potential to contribute meaningfully to the community. The award is an $80,000 scholarship, paying $20,000 per year for four years. To date this award has totaled $480,000.
