Linda Ulland Memorial Scholarship
The Paul Bunyan Scenic Byway Association (PBSBA) provides a yearly opportunity for graduating seniors from Pequot Lakes and Pine River-Backus schools to apply for a $1000.00 scholarship.
The scholarship, known as the Linda Ulland Memorial Scholarship, was established by the PBSBA board shortly after Linda’s passing December 26, 2011, and has been available to seniors from these two Scenic Byway route schools since 2012. One scholarship is available each year.
Linda Ulland was instrumental in helping the Paul Bunyan Scenic Byway Association organize as a non-profit group and in crafting the bedrock documents that continue to guide the Association today. Her dedication and many volunteer hours assured the establishment and longevity of the Scenic Byway. The Linda Ulland Memorial Scholarship provides the PBSBA with an opportunity to honor Linda’s commitment, recognize the results of that commitment, and challenge others to follow in her Paul Bunyan-sized footsteps of community service and volunteerism.
Students with a strong interest in community service and environmental issues who wish to apply for this scholarship can get an application at their high school counselor’s office or by clicking ‘scholarship application’ in the right sidebar on the Paul Bunyan Scenic Byway website, www.paulbunyanscenicbyway.org.
