Scholarship Corner by Laurie Friedman, CPN Scholarship Committee

This article originally ran in the November 2011 Cedar Park Neighbors newsletter.  Want to receive the newsletter delivered to your doorstep (or directly to your email inbox)?  Join CPN today at  Since 1989, Cedar Park Neighbors (CPN) has raised money and given modest scholarships to support students from the neighborhood in their pursuit of higher education.  Unlike many restricted scholarships, Cedar Park’s scholarship offers students funds to pay for any and all school-related expenses, which could be anything from tuition and books, to something as simple as transportation to and from school.

As the Fall semester is in full swing and nearing an end, it is never too early to begin thinking about our next round of CPN Scholarships! While scholarship applications are not due until June 1, 2013, we want to remind everyone to please spread the word to neighbors who are attending a post secondary school.  To be eligible, applicants must live in Cedar Park’s boundaries and be accepted to college or a vocational school.  Applications will be available on the CPN website in January.  Questions can be sent to or you can call us at 267-531-4147.

We also want to ask everyone to please mark April 7, 2013 on your calendars for our annual scholarship fundraiser at Dock Street.  If you have any items you would be willing to donate for our silent auction, please let us know. As always, we appreciate your support!
