Bill Lunsford-PDCA Scholarship Fund

A teacher, Bill advocated that education makes a difference and this fund can be a tool to help with that difference.

The Trustee's of the PDCA Bill Lunsford Scholarship Fund vote to award scholarship grants to eligible deserving applicants selected by Fund's Trustees. Eligibility rules and application procedures are available here.

The Fund's Trustees will receive nominations postmarked no later than December 31, 2014 for awards distributed in 2015. Any nominations received after the above deadline will be considered for awards distributed in 2016.
