Dave Stone Scholarship Award

Each year the Erie Chamber of Commerce presents two - $2000 scholarships for graduating seniors who are either Erie Residents or attending an Erie School.





●             Two $2,000 scholarships will be awarded.

●             Award money can be used at any university, college, or post-secondary institution.  It will be sent directly to the school once the student is enrolled and provides their student ID to the Chamber office.

●             To qualify for the scholarship, you must be an Erie High School graduating senior or an Erie resident graduating senior attending any high school.

●             You must have a minimum 3.0 cumulative unweighted high school GPA, verified by an attached official transcript.

●             The scholarship committee members place an emphasis on community service.  While we understand students participate in service-related high school activities, we only consider community activities that are not related to high school clubs, events, or group functions.

●             You must turn in your application for this scholarship to the Erie Chamber of Commerce office by 5 p.m. on Wednesday, March 20, 2024.

●             The scholarship committee will interview finalists for the award in April.  Finalists will be notified by Chamber of Commerce officials to arrange interview times.

●             Scholarship winners will be notified and recognized at the Dave Stone Scholarship Awards Ceremony at the Erie Chamber of Commerce in early May.

●             Children of current scholarship committee members are not eligible for this award.

●             Follow all application instructions. Only complete applications that follow all instructions will be considered.
