College Scholarship


The Samuel R. Myers Foundation College Scholarship Program

The Samuel R. Myers Foundation for Suicide and Mental Health Awareness will award two (2) college scholarships in the amount of $500.00; one (1) for recognition of an outstanding Manteno H.S. student-athlete and one (1) for a Manteno H.S. student who has modeled exemplary civic responsibility. The candidates will receive a certificate for the scholarship and, after providing proof of college enrollment, will receive a check in the amount of $500.00 to be used for any college related expenses. Applicants for this scholarship shall obtain the application form from the Manteno H.S. Guidance office.   

Scholarship Committee

A scholarship committee consisting entirely of non-Manteno residents will be created to grade the applicants only after names have been removed from the scholarship applications.  In this manner the scoring will consist of a double-blind process where applicants are graded entirely on merit.
