Scholarship for Local Student
Phelps’ annual Maple Syrup Fest has been growing over the past few years. 2015 included the introduction of the first ever Maple Syrup Fest scholarship. The committee announced early in 2015 that it would award one scholarship. Syrup sales by local producers and higher than expected attendance allowed the committee to award TWO scholarships to two exceptional local students, one from Phelps and one from Iron River, Michigan.
Applications are now being accepted for the 2016 Maple Syrup Fest scholarship. Any student in the area planning on continuing their education in the fall may apply. This includes students from Phelps, Northland Pines, Three Lakes, Iron River and Watersmeet and any homeschooled students living in these areas.
The scholarship committee will be evaluating each application on the basis of accurate completion and the student’s academic performance and community involvement. Those applicants that choose to volunteer for Maple Syrup Fest will receive special consideration.
