Enhance the Future Scholarship

Please read for information on how to apply for the Enhance the Future Scholarship.


The Enhance the Future Scholarship is for Pekin High School seniors who graduate during the 2018-19 school year (mid-year or end-of-year) who attended North Pekin-Marquette Heights School District 102 for, at least, six (6) years and who will be attending an accredited college, university or trade school. Students who attended District 102 Schools who still live within the District 102 boundaries, but will be graduating from a different high school may still apply for consideration. If chosen, a scholarship of $500 will be awarded to recipients.  Recipients are selected by a committee of District 102 current and/or retired staff members.  


The presentation of this scholarship is made at the Georgetowne Middle School graduation at the end of the school year in May.  This scholarship is an ongoing project originally established by Mr. David Perkins, a retired District 102 teacher with a 39-year teaching career in the district.  


To apply, a student must complete the Enhance the Future Scholarship application. The application can be located at the following link and is due by March 13, 2019! 




For individuals who would like to make a financial contribution to support this scholarship, any support is very much appreciated.  
Checks should be made to the Marquette Men’s Club.  Please note “EFS” on the “For” line of the check.  Checks should be mailed to:


C/O Enhance the Future 


The District 102 office will record and copy all checks received.
