Fran Anderson Michigan PTA Scholarship



Fran’s passion and enthusiasm for children was certainly contagious. Every year she attended the Michigan PTA convention to personally present the Fran Anderson Michigan PTA Scholarship. This scholarship was set up by her, because of her dedication and promise to the children of Michigan to continue on to great things. She believed so much in the ability of our young people and it certainly showed when she spoke about the scholarship recipients.

                      - Teresa Marhofer, Michigan PTA President


The Fran Anderson Michigan PTA Scholarship was created as a way to recognize high school seniors who have demonstrated leadership and advocacy skills through participation in PTA.  A minimum of one $1,000 scholarship is awarded each year and additional scholarships and/or scholarships of varying amounts are awarded based on available funds.

Fran Anderson, past Michigan PTA President, always demonstrated the highest level of advocacy for all children and her leadership continues to have a positive impact on Michigan PTA. To honor her many years of being a champion for children, the scholarship was named in her honor.

Scholarship recipients are selected by a committee comprised of Michigan PTA Past Presidents based on the following criteria:  PTA/PTSA involvement, essay, community service, additional activities, academics and letters of recommendation.
