The Scholarships and Programs Committee of the El Reno Public School Foundation is responsible for implementing grant and scholarship procedures, and making funding recommendations to the ERPSF Board of Directors. The Committee appoints subcommittees which include ERPSF Board members and/or appropriate representatives from the community. Subcommittee members review and score grants and scholarship. Funding recommendations are made to the Board based on the results of the subcommittee reviews. It is the intent of the Committee to support activities that are consistent with the goals, policies, and procedures of El Reno Public Schools.
Awards are funded by the Foundation’s general revenue, gifts, and endowments. Because of the generosity of supporters, the Foundation has been able to endow multiple scholarships yearly. These scholarships are available for past and present El Reno graduates.
Students applying for scholarships must be a graduate of El Reno High School, recommended for graduation in May, and planning to pursue additional education or certification.
Applications are available from the EHS Guidance Counselors and this website. Applicants should complete the appropriate Student Scholarship application.
Immediately prior to each funding period, ERPSF Board of Directors will be responsible for notifying the Scholarships and Programs Committee of the funds available for awards for that period.
Subcommittees with representation from the community will be appointed annually by the Scholarships and Programs Committee, and approved by the ERPSF Board. The Chair of the Scholarships and Programs Committee will serve as chair of these subcommittees. The subcommittees will be responsible for reviewing applications and making funding recommendations to the ERPSF Board of Directors. All review procedures will be confidential.
