The Oak Ridge Public Schools Education Foundation is now accepting applications for the 2014 fall Dr. Adrian R. Lawler Exchange Scholarship, and they are due by October 31.
Applications are available through the Foundation’s website at www.orpsef.org under the Lawler Scholarship tab. They should be returned to the Oak Ridge Public Schools Education Foundation, P.O. Box 117 MS-22, Oak Ridge, TN 37831.
Students with a B+ average attending Oak Ridge schools and graduates of Oak Ridge High School currently attending college are eligible for the scholarship, a press release said. The scholarship will not usually provide total funding, but instead encourage students to earn part of their funding as a life lesson.
Lawler, a retired marine biologist who died in 2013, had designated the Education Foundation to administer the scholarship. His will included a bequest to the Education Foundation for the scholarship endowment.
