Endowed scholarships were recently established by a member of the Pine Meer Foundation in the names of various Schott Family members. They include the following. 

William C. & Lucia R. Schott Medical Scholarship
at the University of Cincinnati  (UC) College of Medicine:

Approximately $20,000 annually.

These funds are for a recipient every other year and for each year for their 4-year degree.  Consequently, this results in grants of about $10,000 a year, or a total of $40,000 for each recipient. Preference is given to those who graduated from high schools on the West Side of Cincinnati, as well as graduates from Ohio Wesleyan University (OWU) and graduates from UC that were members of Kappa Kappa Gamma. 

Virginia E. Schott Design Scholarship
at the UC College of Design, Architecture, Art and Planning (DAAP):

Approximately $10,000 annually.

Each year about $5,000 is awarded to an entering Freshman, who is eligible for another $5,000 as a Sophomore. (Because this is a co-op program, the student should have earnings from their work after their second year to pay most of their remaining tuition expenses.) Preference given to a graduate from a high school on the West Side Cincinnati or Kenton Co.

Louis L. Schott Graduate Business Scholarship

at the University of Denver, Daniels College of Business

Approximately $10,000 annually. 

Preference given to UC and OWU graduates.

Louis L. & Virginia E. Schott Summer Study Abroad Program

at Ohio Wesleyan University (OWU):

Approximately $2,500 annually.  

Note: For more information, please contact the respective university.
