The William H. Locke Memorial Scholarship
Established in the Trust Agreement of Mildred T. Locke in 1976, the Locke Scholarships are for students currently graduating from the Oil City Area High School. The Locke Scholarship is a one-year scholarship. The scholarships are awarded according to financial need to students planning to attend colleges, universities, technical or trade schools, nursing schools, or business colleges. The Locke Scholarship Committee gives consideration to scholastic achievement, test scores, and participation in school and community activities when selecting scholarship recipients. An addition was made to the Locke Fund from the estate of Donald K. Slick in 1998.
