GSF offering community scholarships

The Gresham Scholarship Fund (GSF) awards a limited number of community scholarships each year to qualifying members of the Gresham community.

To get the details and an application form go to and click the link “College and Non-Traditional.” Then look for “Gresham Community Scholarship.” The deadline for applications is June 30.

Arthur Ward, a 1986 graduate of Gresham High School, was awarded one of the community scholarships recently and carries a cumulative 3.735 grade point average at University of Wisconsin-Green Bay, where he is a senior. Ward is studying for a Bachelor of Applied Studies in integrative leadership studies with two areas of emphasis, applied communications and environmental policies.

“I just can’t tell you enough how much I appreciate my scholarship and how much I endorse what the Gresham Scholarship Fund has been, and is, doing for the Gresham community,” Ward said. “It’s never too late to go back to school.”

Ward will be graduating within the year with high honors.

In addition to the community scholarships, GSF currently awards a $1,750 scholarship to all Gresham High School graduates who apply and have a “C” or better average. The scholarship can be applied to college or trade school.
