Scholarships Available for Area Students

 The Parkersburg Area Community Foundation & Regional Affiliates (PACF) is excited to launch its 2016 Scholarship Application!  The Foundation administers more than 175 scholarship funds for the benefit of students in its 11-county service area (Calhoun, Gilmer, Doddridge, Roane, Wirt, Wood, Ritchie, Jackson, Mason, and Pleasants Counties in West Virginia and Washington County, Ohio).

 Through the Foundation’s online scholarship application, students are given the opportunity to apply for multiple scholarships through one easy application.  To apply, students must visit to review the full list of available scholarships and their eligibility criteria.  Students must then proceed to the online application form available at  This application must be completed and submitted online by midnight on March 3, 2016.

 During the PACF’s 2015 scholarship application process, the Foundation awarded 308 scholarships totaling over $320,000 to our region’s students.  These awards were made possible by many generous donors who established scholarship funds with the Foundation to help our local students fulfill their educational goals.  Each year, more than 215 community volunteers residing throughout the PACF’s service area assist the Foundation in reviewing the submitted scholarship applications.

 “With hundreds of applications, we are very grateful for the volunteer support that we receive each scholarship season,” said PACF’s Regional Scholarship Coordinator, Rachel Brezler.  “It is awe-inspiring to work with donors who are passionate about our region's next generation and helping them achieve their post-secondary education goals.”
