The City of Parma Andrew Boyko Memorial Scholarship Foundation

Andrew Boyko Scholarship Foundation Board of Trustees is honored to offer the Andrew Boyko Scholarship. The Boyko Scholarship Foundation was established in 2006 in honor of Andrew Boyko, who served the City of Parma for more than 30 years as a judge and law director. The scholarship is intended to provide financial assistance to high school seniors living in Parma who wish to pursue post-secondary education. Many city officials, residents and businesses have given generously to make this scholarship available.

Foundation board members commend students who want to further their education and encourage them to apply for other financial assistance as well, particularly federal and state aid, by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form. The selection committee will take into consideration each applicant's financial need, special circumstances, character, scholastic record, involvement in community service and commitment to the City of Parma. (Board trustees are not involved in the selection process.) The selection committee will award a total of $7,500 in scholarships: three to five scholarships with a minimum award of $1,500 for each scholarship. One of these scholarships will be designated for an applicant exhibiting an exceptional commitment to community service.
