Pioneer Scholarship Fund

The Pioneer Scholarship Fund was started in 2008 by Isabelle Peterson to provide funds for first generation of family members to attend college or non-traditional/ minority students residing in La Porte County to pursue post secondary education or training. Recently, an anonymous donor has generously agreed to match donations made to the Pioneer Scholarship Fund up to $25,000.  This offer ends on December 31, 2016.
