The purpose of the fund is to provide scholarships to graduates of Reading High School who will be furthering their education at a college, university, vocational or technical school. Selected students must have been active participants in student council and/or student government in their senior year of high school, with a preference to those who have participated in student council and/or student government more than just their senior year. The recipients need not have been the best academic students in high school. The fund is seeking those students who are more likely to succeed and shine during their post-secondary education.

No application is needed. This scholarship is awarded by a committee at Reading High School, with consideration given to all Reading High School seniors.
