Just A Kid Scholarship

The "Just A Kid" Scholarship is inspired by Garon Lewis. Garon tragically lost his life before his final year of high school. He was robbed of his opportunity to pursue a career in nursing, so we will do our part and assist youth with the same career goal. 

This scholarship is for all graduating seniors who are seeking a degree or certification, but preference will be given to those pursing a degree or certification in nursing. The other eligibility requirements are as follows:

  • GPA of 2.5 or higher

  • Submit a completed application packet by deadline (May 6th, 2022)

You can send your completed application to gpalfoundation1202@gmail.com

Your application will be reviewed by GPAL's Executive Board. Recipients selected to receive the scholarship will be notified on or before June 1st. If you have any questions about the scholarship, you can email us at gpalfoundation1202@gmail.com.

Teen Court Scholarship 

The Teen Court Scholarship is specifically for students who participated in our Teen Court program. This scholarship will be awarded to one of our senior participants who has shown dedication to the program.

The deadline for this scholarship is May 6th, 2022. Students must apply using paper applications which can be requested from a Teen Court Administrator or received on a Teen Court training day.
