G. William Hartzell Fund

George William “Bill” Hartzell was instrumental in continuing the Hartzell family businesses in Piqua for many years, and was a major supporter of the Piqua community. Mr. Hartzell passed away on April 30, 2016; a bequest made as a result of his estate planning will allow the fund to financially continue his generosity to the community.

This fund makes scholarships available to worthy local students attending institutions of higher learning offering 4 or 5 year programs. Eligible students must have lived within the Piqua School district during high school, graduated from Piqua High School or Lehman Catholic High School, or be a child or grandchild of an employee of Hartzell Industries. Scholarships award up to $2500 per year for up to 4 years per eligible student.

Applications are no longer available for 2019 scholarships. The 2020 applications will be posted in January 2020.
