Since 1952, donors have contributed more than $340,000 to the Abington Heights Student Aid Fund. Last year alone 48 graduates received scholarships, loans or grants ranging from $250 to $2,500. More than $1,600 Abington graduates have received help to attend colleges, universities and technical and trade schools over the years. This year, the fund has again been offered matching grants for donations up to $6,000. Any new donation or increased donation will count toward this match. Eligible senior students are encouraged each year to make application to the Student Aid Fund. Grants are awarded on the basis of need and scholastic standing. Interest-free loans are also awarded and students are eligible to reapply for aid throughout the duration of their education. The Student Aid Fund also administers scholarships given by the community organizations and institutions and helps individuals who want to establish memorial scholarships.
