The Cassner Foundation Scholarship was established by Mr. and Mrs. Alvin B. Cassner.
Seven $3,500 a year scholarships are awarded annually to Highland County High School seniors. The scholarships are renewable for a four-year period upon evidence that a 2.0 average is maintained.
Scholarships are awarded on the basis of academic achievement, personal qualifications and stated goals and objectives.
The final applicants are interviewed by a three-person screening committee before the committee awards the scholarships. Students can receive information about the scholarship from their school counselor.
