Padgett offers $500 scholarship

High school seniors who are children of independent business owners are eligible to apply for a $500 scholarship offered by Padgett Business Services.

Applicants must be graduating high school seniors who plan to attend a post-secondary accredited institution.

The legal guardian of the student must be an active owner of at least 10 percent of stock or capital in a local business that employs fewer than 20 people.

Regional winners will be eligible for a grand prize scholarship of $4,000.

The deadline for applying is March 1.

The local award is part of an international program in which Padgett Business Services is offering more than $25,000 in scholarships throughout the United States and Canada.

Awards are based on test scores, grade point average and education and career plans.

Local winners will be announced in May. The grand prize will be awarded in June.
