Myron Fishel Scholarship

The Myron Fishel Scholarship Fund application is now closed and will open in early 2021.


The Myron Fishel Scholarship Fund was created by Dr. Waite Phillip Fishel, a former chemistry professor at Vanderbilt University, in 1974 to honor the memory of his only son, Myron, who was killed in action during World War II. The Myron Fishel Scholarship Fund joined the Guernsey County Foundation’s Family of Funds at the Foundation for Appalachian Ohio (FAO) in late 2016.

Guernsey County students attending or planning to attend an accredited post-secondary institution in Ohio are invited to apply for the Myron Fishel Scholarship. Applications are available from the guidance offices at Cambridge, Meadowbrook, Buckeye Trail, and John Glenn High Schools in addition to US Bank in Cambridge and online from the Foundation for Appalachian Ohio.


Eligibility Requirements and Criteria

  • Applicants must be Guernsey County residents attending or planning to attend an accredited postsecondary institution in Ohio providing training and certification in various trades and fields of vocational interests, associate degree programs, and 4-year institutions of higher learning.

Amount of Award

Scholarship awards and amounts will vary, depending on availability of funds. Scholarship awards are made payable directly to the institution of enrollment on the student’s behalf, for all education-related expenses.


Review Process

The trustees serving as the Fund’s Scholarship Committee – the Guernsey County Probate Judge, the Guernsey County Prosecuting Attorney, and the area president of US Bank – will review applications and recommend awards. Final approval is made by the Foundation’s Board of Trustees and all decisions are final.
