Mustang Merit Honorary Scholarship
Palo Pinto ISD is proud to offer a scholarship opportunity for current graduating seniors who plan to attend an institution of higher learning full-time or enlist full-time in the armed forces immediately following graduation (summer or fall semester). There are criteria to apply. Even in light of school closures due to COVID-19, applications are DUE no later than the 2nd Monday in April at 3:00pm. If mailing the completed application & required documents, it must be received in the district by the deadline. Late applications will not be considered. Though the plan is for scholarship recipients to be notified by the 2nd Friday in May, contingent upon funds and the submission of quality applications, due to recommendations of social isolation, the scholarship committee will be attempting to meet in order to fulfill that notification timeline. However, recipients may be notified after the 2nd Friday in May. To determine eligibility and to apply, click here. Good luck to all of our Mustang alumni applicants!
