The Holasek-Griffiths Scholarship for Business was established in 2000 through the generosity of Harold Griffiths in honor of his late wife, Betty Holasek-Griffiths, who was an Eden Prairie High School graduate (class of 1947).
Strongest consideration will be given to students who can demonstrate their interest in a career in Business. Relevant coursework, activities, community service and employment are considered. While applicants should be all-around citizens, GPA is not the crucial factor for selection.
