The Mort and Tish Levy Educational Scholarship is an annual scholarship awarded to any high school senior or individual over the age of 18 who is pursuing a Bachelors or advanced degree, or advanced training or technical school training.  Mort and Tish Levy were longtime members of the Davenport community.  Mort served on the Friendly House board and was a well-known business person in the community.  His wife Tish was an accomplished artist.  Together they demonstrated their love and care for their community throughout their lifetime in many philanthropic endeavors.  Their family has now chosen to recognize this legacy of care with two annual $1,000 scholarships.  It is their hope that the recipient of this scholarship will use the opportunity for advanced education to develop new skills that can be used to make Davenport a better community.  One of the two scholarships will give special weight to those candidates pursuing an interest in the area of fine arts.

Requirements:

– High school senior or individual over the age of 18
