The Peggy Dickey Memorial Scholarship was established for graduating seniors from any Keokuk Iowa High School or home schooled equivalent. The student must be as a resident of Keokuk Iowa. Students must be in the Top 25% of their graduating class at their Keokuk High School, or display high academic achievement in their home-schooled program to qualify for the Peggy Dickey Memorial Scholarship. Successful applicants should also demonstrate a financial need for this scholarship.
A Peggy Dickey Memorial Scholarship recipient(s) must attend or be enrolled in an Iowa college or university upon high school graduation or completion of home schooled equivalent.
Each scholarship is $1,000.00 or more per year. This can be a renewable scholarship for a second, third and fourth year, provided the student has maintained a 3.2 grade point average each year at the Iowa college or university they attend. To receive a renewal of the scholarship, the student must provide documentation to the Keokuk Area Community Foundation regarding grade point average each year and proof of enrollment.
