Having money should never be a prerequisite for college.

The Neely Foundation awards scholarships to students who aspire to obtain a college education or technical training. Seniors at selected high schools are eligible for $3,000 scholarships each academic year. 
The scholarship is for four consecutive years or until technical training is completed, whichever is sooner, providing
the student continues to meet
the required qualifications.

Scholarship recipients are determined by each of the participating high schools -
