Cedar County Historical Society scholarships


Application packets for the Cedar County Historical Society J. Curtis and Frances Forest Frymoyer scholarship have been sent to area Cedar County high schools, and also to Wilton, West Liberty and Lisbon. The scholarship, which was created in 2001, is a way for the society to show belief in the youth and future of the county.

Multiple scholarships up to $1,000 will be awarded, and pictures of the students will be published in the annual Cedar County Historical Review.

Any Cedar County student applying or enrolled in a university, college, community college or technical college is encouraged to apply. Non-winners from previous years may reapply as well. Students must complete the scholarship application, including an essay on their Cedar County heritage, and two references.

The scholarship awards will be paid on Jan. 1, 2020, after a successful first semester and enrollment for a second semester. This must be documented. Applications are due April 15. Late applications will not be accepted.

For more information or to pick up a scholarship packet, please contact the Cedar County Historical Society at 1094 Hwy. 38, Tipton, or call (563)886-2899.
