Continuing Education Scholarship

The Continuing Education Scholarship was created by an anonymous donor to assist a disadvantaged female student at Great Falls High School (GFHS) or Paris Gibson Education Center (PGEC) who wants to continue her education after high school. The donor is a Great Falls High graduate who found a path to obtaining a degree by attending both junior and 4-year colleges. This individual also obtained several forms of financial aid to help achieve that goal.

This $1,500 scholarship may be used to pay tuition, books and related expenses for post-secondary education in a vocational, technical, university, or college setting.
