Mr. and Mrs. Warren Roberts transferred the Thomas Warren Roberts Memorial Fund to the Parkersburg Area Community Foundation several years ago. Understanding the needs of graduating students, the Roberts established this fund to further the education of young people.

Students graduating from Belpre High School in Belpre, Ohio, and/or Cheltenham High School in Pennsylvania are eligible for the scholarship. Students from Belpre High School who excel in creative writing also have the opportunity to receive prize awards for their achievements. Scholarship recipients are chosen on the basis of financial need, academic achievement, involvement in school activities, and character.
