Each Year, the PMT Foundation awards scholarships to local graduating seniors who plan on continuing their education. Over the past 28 years, PMT, and now the PMT Foundation, have awarded scholarships to 40 deserving seniors in the Magic Valley.

This year, the PMT Foundation is pleased to be able to continue the tradition of awarding scholarships. Applications for the 2019 PMT Foundation Scholarships are now available at www.pmt.org or through participating area high school counselors’ offices. The Foundation will award, at a minimum, three $2,000 scholarships in 2019. To be considered for a scholarship, applications are due by March 29, 2019.

The PMT Foundation scholarship is designed to assist graduating seniors who wish to continue their education at a college, university or trade school the summer or fall immediately following their high school graduation.

PMT Foundation Board Members will select the successful applicants based on the information provided on the application. Need is not necessarily a guideline for selecting scholarship recipients, but all items being equal, it may be used in determining awardees. The primary criteria are the student’s academic record, demonstrated achievement or leadership and answers to questions on the application.

For questions regarding the PMT Foundation Scholarship Application process, please contact your local PMT office, or email us at pmt@pmt.org.

 

About the PMT Foundation

The PMT Foundation was created in 2006 by the PMT Board of Directors as a charitable foundation. The Foundation furthers education in communities served by Project Mutual Telephone through its scholarship program, and it supports projects and programs that sustain and improve those communities.

To date, the Foundation has helped over 40 area students with funding to further their education beyond high school by continuing the scholarship tradition that PMT established in 1990. The Foundation has contributed over $175,000 in grant award to community organizations that help sustain and improve our local community through various projects.
