Orland Township Offering Scholarships to Local High School Seniors
Local students graduating high school in 2022 and heading to college are encouraged to apply for an Orland Township Scholarship Foundation award.
This program, launched in 1998, has since awarded 333 scholarships to Township students totaling $274,000.
The Orland Township Scholarship Foundation award scholarships based on a combination of the applicant’s leadership skills, dedication to community service, academic focus, participation in extracurricular activities, recommendations from school representatives, volunteer supervisors or employers, an assigned essay question response and any other pertinent information requested within the application.
Students faced with hardships will be given strong consideration. Applicants must be residents of Orland Township, high school seniors graduating in 2022 and enroll as a full-time student at a college, university, trade, or vocational school.
“The Orland Township Scholarship Foundation is dedicated to recognizing and supporting of all our youth,” said Paul O’Grady, Orland Township Supervisor and Scholarship Foundation President.
“I look forward to celebrating the accomplishments of members of the Class of 2022 as we send them off to the next chapter in their lives.”
Applications for Orland Township Scholarships are available at the Township office, 14807 S. Ravinia Avenue, Orland Park, and on the Township website: orlandtownship.org/scholarship-foundation. Completed applications must be postmarked or delivered to Orland Township by Thursday, March 31, 2022.
