PHS Booster Club 2023-2024 Scholarship

The PHS Pirate Booster Club is now accepting applications for its 50th annual Scholarship Program. These scholarships will be awarded to deserving members of the Palatine High School graduating class of 2024 wishing to further their education.

Up to 15 graduating seniors may receive a $1,000 scholarship.

Twelve of these scholarships are named in honor of Fred Zajonc. Mr. Zajonc was a community leader, a village trustee, and long time member and past president of the Booster Club who worked tirelessly to generate parent and community
support of Palatine High School.

Two additional scholarships, the “Charlotte M. and Robert C. Donahue Millennium Scholarship”, were donated by PHS alumni, Andy and Patrick Donahue, in honor of their parents, the late Charlotte and Robert Donahue.

This year an additional scholarship will be offered by the “One Love Foundation” donated by the Choi family and will follow the same selection criteria as the Booster and Millennium scholarships.

Please submit completed applications by 3:45pm on Monday, March 11, 2024 to main secretary in the main office at PHS.
