The award may be applied to any type of education or training, including internships and apprenticeships; during or post high school graduation.  

This service award is funded through an anonymous private donation made by two Violet Township residents. The Pickerington Public Library Fund and Fundraising committee will select the scholarship winners. Scholarships may be awarded to one or more applicants with awards of $500-$750 per awardee. The Library Fund will award a maximum of three scholarships per year. Once awarded a scholarship, the awardee is not eligible for future scholarships with this library fund.  

Applications are open for submission from December 1 through January 30.
