Berkshire Taconic Community Foundation has established a new scholarship available to graduating seniors from Mount Greylock Regional High School.

Students are eligible for the Michael P. O’Brien Scholarship  if they plan to study aeronautics, aviation or engineering, particularly if their goal is to become a pilot.  Scholarships will be awarded for the first year of study only. The minimum award amount is $1,000.

The fund was established in honor of the late Michael P. O’Brien, a young pilot and graduate of Mount Greylock. The Michael P. O’Brien Scholarship recipient will be chosen by representatives of the Mount Greylock Regional High School based on the criteria of: expressed desire to enter the aeronautical or aviation field, especially as a pilot, and reasonable academic achievement.

The deadline to apply for 2010 scholarships is Saturday, May 1. Students should visit the Mount Greylock guidance office for an application.
