We value the struggle that some students may encounter while in high school that could hinder their applying to and attending college. The Patrick B. Harper Scholarship Foundation wants to help any student who is a good candidate for college and who also demonstrates a need for this assistance. Patrick Harper was always an advocate for these students. We want his legacy to live on.

Help Us Make A Difference In A Student’s Life

We believe in students who do not let their struggles define them. Help us celebrate their perseverance. The Patrick B. Harper Scholarship Foundation is 100% not for profit and all donations are tax deductible.
