SIDNEY — Because of a lack of qualified applicants, the Heidi Norris Scholarship is reopening its application process until July 27.

An $850 scholarship is available for students with a major in respiratory therapy or related fields.

The scholarship will be awarded to an Auglaize, Mercer or Shelby County resident who has surpassed college freshman status. Eligible applicants must have a grade point average of 2.5 or higher and be pursuing an associate’s, bachelor’s or master’s degree in respiratory therapy or another closely related field.

Online applications are available at www.commfoun.com. In addition to completing the application, interested students must attach at least one letter of recommendation, a listing of their activities and work history and their EFC information from the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) Student Aid Report. Applicants must also attach a statement about their interest in the field and why they should be awarded the scholarship.
