Robert C. Byrd Honors Scholarship Program

The Robert C. Byrd Honors Scholarship Program is a federally funded program administered by the Office of Public Instruction to recognize exceptionally able high school seniors who show promise of continued excellence in post-secondary education.  The high school principals and counselors will need to remind their student applicants that the awards cannot be announced until the U.S. Congress finalizes the budget for the coming school year.  Please inform the student applicants that the federal funds may be discontinued due to national budget constraints.
