Posted on Monday, January 14, 2013 at 1:03 pm

 East Tennessee Foundation has announced the availability of scholarships for Lakeway Area students for the 2013-2014 school year.

 A new scholarship, the Brilla Young Scholarship, was established to assist graduates of Hancock County High School and Grainger County High School in pursuing programs of study leading to registered nurse certification.

 Hancock and Grainger students are also eligible for the James K. Goldston INFOSEC Scholarship, as are students from Claiborne, Cocke, Greene, Hamblen, Hawkins and Jefferson counties.

 The scholarship provides assistance to students pursuing undergraduate programs of study with a National Security Agencyapproved information security (also known as INFOSEC) curriculum.

 ETF scholarship program requirements include financial need, scholastic achievement and/or field of study, and vary among scholarships.

 Several scholarships are targeted toward specific schools or counties, students involved in certain extracurricular activities and those who may not display the highest scholastic rankings but have great potential and motivation.

 In fall 2012, more than $185,000 were disbursed in scholarship awards in ETF programs for 124 participating students.

 Scholarships provided through ETF benefit students seeking a secondary education, including both graduating high school seniors and returning adult students.

 ETF also allows individuals and groups to establish scholarships to honor the memory of lost parents, spouses or children.

 Some ETF scholarships have been founded to honor coaches and other prominent community leaders.

 For more information, contact Beth Heller, ETF Scholarship and Program Officer, at 865-524-1223, toll free at 1-877-524-1223 or by e-mail at bheller@etf.org.
