Scholarship Opportunities - Pankow

Each year in March, the Frederick V. Pankow Center offers scholarship opportunities for SENIOR students who attend the Pankow Center, and or who are specifically in Career and Technical Education programs.  These scholarships are offered to assist Pankow students with post-secondary expenses.  Information on how to apply is made available to senior students in the Second semester through their Pankow Center class.  

Criteria for Pankow Center Scholarships: 

Students must submit a completed application which includes typing an essay which clearly states the student's career goals and why they deserve the scholarship.  Students must upload or submit a copy of their transcript and two Professional Recommendations - One from your Pankow Teacher, and another from any other Teacher or Non-Relative Adult.   Financial need will be considered.  See additional scholarship requirements for eligibility.   

Recommendations and References:

All Pankow Center Scholarships require at least two references or recommendations; one from a Pankow Center Teacher, and one from another teacher or NON-Relative Adult.  It is the students' responsibility to ask for, and obtain a reference.  Always allow ample time for your references to complete the form or letter in time to be returned before the deadline.  Staff members may use the form below.  References from those outside the district may provide a typed letter of reference.  It is customary to send a Thank You letter to all those who have written a recommendation or reference for you.

Scholarship Selection and Recognition:

Scholarship recipients are selected to receive the award by a committee of L'Anse Creuse Public Schools staff members.  

Pankow Center scholarship winners will receive an invitation in April via US mail to attend and the Pankow Center Honors Night Ceremony held each May at the John Armstrong Performing Arts Auditorium from 6:30-8:00 pm.   Scholarship winners will be announced that evening during the ceremony.  Please check the annual calender for the exact date and time.
