Pleasant Valley Schools Educational Foundation Scholarship


Since the Foundation's inception in 1990, a major goal has been to provide scholarships to PVCHS graduating seniors. The Foundation has progressed from awarding two $500 scholarships in 1991, to awarding 15 $1000 scholarships in the past six years.

To date, the Foundation has awarded 145 scholarships totaling $120,500 including those awarded in 2003. The Foundation's ultimate goal is to provide a scholarship to every Pleasant Valley High School graduate. The Foundation Board sponsors an annual golf event each spring at PalmerHills in Bettendorf as their major fund raising effort for the scholarship fund.
