On Wednesday, May 2, Perham High School hosted the annual Community Scholarship Program. It is remarkable to see all of the community giving and support that is shared with our students. We are proud to announce that over $115,000 will be provided in scholarships to our students!
We are thankful for all of the different organizations, memorial funds, businesses, and families that provide funds for our students.
And a special thank you to KLN Family Brands who has generously offered a $250 scholarship for every PHS graduating senior that intends on pursuing their education after high school!

Perham Area Scholarship Fund
The Perham Area Scholarship Fund, formally known as Dollars for Scholars committee, provides financial assistance and a strong message about the importance of education beyond high school and encourages students to further their education. The Fund utilizes income from permanent funds to ensure perpetual, yearly scholarships. Some awards are also sponsored in the names of individuals, organizations, and businesses.
The Perham Area Scholarship Fund philosophy is to distribute funds to as many students who plan to further their education as possible. Students become eligible for local awards by submitting an application. The selection process is objective, nondiscriminatory, and makes scholarships available to a wide range of deserving students.
