Applications are being accepted now through May 31, 2021.

“Children’s education is vital to the success of our community, and we have been fortunate to serve so many young people and their families over the past 100 years,” said Jennifer Bryant-Foster, VP at Foster Fuels and Trustee of the Watt Foster Family Foundation. “We only turn 100 once and wanted to do something big for our loyal customers by offering 100 scholarships.”
