Feda Scholarship Adds Areas of Study, Additional Award


Two changes to the application requirements for the Feda Scholarship for the Trades become effective with this spring’s applications, Ken Oster announced this week. He chairs the Valley County Community Foundation, which administers the scholarship. Remaining unchanged is the scholarship award to a Valley County high school senior graduating in 2016 with plans to attend a trade school.

The first change allows previous recipients to apply for a second scholarship, providing they have successfully completed one semester of study. The second change adds computer technology and criminal justice to the list of potential study.

All applicants must be residents of Valley County. First-time applicants must be graduating from a Valley County high school, receiving a home school certificate or a GED and pursuing a post-secondary education in the trades. Applicable course work includes, but is not limited to plumbing, electrical, drafting, mechanics, welding, carpentry, medical technology and this year’s additions. Past scholarship recipients studied aviation mechanics, electrical technology, computer systems technology and diesel mechanics.

Gerry and Audrey Feda of Glasgow established the scholarship with the VCCF in 2007. Since that time, nine scholarships have been awarded.

Applications will be accepted through April 15. All Valley County high schools have information on the scholarship requirements and applications. They are also available on the VCCF website:

VCCF will accept only paper copies of the applications. They must be postmarked by the deadline and late or incomplete applications will not be considered. Sam Waters of Glasgow chairs the scholarship committee for the VCCF. Contact him at 228-8231 for more information.
