Scholarships applications are currently available for Polson High School graduates.

Any student who is currently enrolled as a senior at Polson High School or as a previous PHS graduate is eligible for these scholarships, which are provided by Polson Scholarship and Education Foundation (PSEF).

The organization offers 13 different $1.000 scholarships geared for high school seniors, and 14 scholarships up to $2,000 for PHS students enrolled in college. These scholarships are for any accredited four-year, two-year, community college or vocational program. Qualifications vary with each scholarship.

All students are encouraged to apply as these scholarships are for every type of student with various GPAs.

Last year 31 students received more than $40,000 in scholarships from PSEF. Again this year the scholarship application is available online at Polson High School website, under the heading "Counseling/PSEF.” Information is also available on Facebook at Polson Scholarship and Education Foundation. All scholarship requirements and applications can be accessed and entered electronically from the PHS webpage.

Money for PSEF is generated by various fundraising events, donations from individuals and clubs, and from families who provide scholarships in memory of loved ones.
