The Helen Rakowski Bole Literary Scholarship program is offered to high school senior students attending Highlands High School. Females, intent on majoring in English Literature, English Education, Communications, Library Science, Foreign Language, or related fields of study are encouraged to apply.
The intent of the program is to provide the recipient a second-year scholarship award, provided that the recipient requests a renewal application, earns a 2.5 GPA their first year, and remains in the same major at the same college/university. Students must phone the AKH Foundation for their Renewal Application (724) 294-3157.
The program was made possible through the generosity of Ms. Bonnie Orkow, daughter of the late Helen Rakowski Bole, a 1930 graduate of Har-Brack High School.
This award will be in the $2,000 to $2,500 range, with the possibility of a similar award in year two.
