Osage City Public Library – Scholarship Event

Monday, March 12th at the Osage City Public Library from 6:00-7:30 p.m.


This event will have scholarships available to Osage City Students (a few that may be available to Burlingame Students PEO and the upcoming Jones Foundation).  I have already dispersed the PEO application and the Jones Foundation application process opens in May, I will also have that information for our Burlingame students.

The main benefit for Burlingame students and parents would be the ability to ask any questions or advise on applying for scholarships.
