Up to 100 high school seniors with a grade point average of 2.0 or above will be eligible for a $2,500 scholarship. In addition, up to 100 freshmen will be awarded an initial $2,000 scholarship, with the opportunity to receive an additional $500 if the student’s family saves $500 in a CHET account by the time the student graduates from high school.
