Applications are now available for the 2019 PTA Council scholarship program. This year, about $18,000 in scholarship funds will be awarded to graduating seniors in the Racine Unified School District (RUSD). Donations from the Racine PTA Council, local PTA units, and private individuals, businesses, and organizations made these scholarships possible.

To apply for this program, students need to fill out the application form, write an essay, and provide information about their school, community, and work activities. Students need to apply by March 1 to be eligible. The scholarships will be awarded at the Council’s annual banquet in early May.

For applications and instructions, students need to contact their high school guidance counselor, or request a form by contacting Kathy Holley via email at p-kholley@sbcglobal.net.

The Racine PTA Council is comprised of representatives from the PTAs and PTSAs in the RUSD. The program started in 1954 and has grown since then. In the past ten years, more than $200,000 in scholarships have been awarded to students in the RUSD.
