The deadline to apply for the PHLF Landmarks Scholarship is Tuesday, April 20. The scholarship is available to high-school seniors in Allegheny County who will be attending college or university in the fall of 2021. Launched in 1999, the Landmarks Scholarship provides $6,000 payable over four years for book and tuition expenses.
We encourage students with a 3.25 grade point average or above, and are involved in their community, and care deeply about the Pittsburgh region to apply. Click here to download the application.
Funded by the Brashear Family Fund, the McSwigan Family Foundation Fund of The Pittsburgh Foundation, Scholarship Committee members, and the Landmarks Scholarship Fund, the program gives students an incentive to excel in school, become involved in the preservation of architecture in their communities, and explore their city in a meaningful way.
“It is so refreshing to me to know that we have so many students in this region who stop for a minute and think about [historic] places. I am amazed by their insights,” Louise Sturgess, PHLF Education Advisor, said of the scholarship in a 2017 interview with SLB Radio Productions.
“High school students,” she added, “are capable of absolute artistry and beauty in their words about historic places.” Click here to listen to the full recording with SLB Radio Host Larry Berger and five other former scholarship recipients between 2001 and 2017.
