The Paul S. Morton Scholarship Foundation is committed to encouraging and advancing educational opportunities by awarding scholarships to graduating high school students who have demonstrated high academic achievement, leadership skills and a commitment to community service.
In October 1969, Bishop Paul S. Morton and eight other community leaders founded the Paul S. Morton Scholarship Foundation to assist local students to achieve their higher educational goals.
The Foundation is operated and maintained by gifts and donations from loyal supporters, grants, endowments or other fundraising activities. We are a 501c3 non-profit charitable organization. Our volunteer Board of Directors is responsible for ensuring that the Foundation’s mission is accomplished, making policy decisions, and securing the financing for scholarships and other initiatives.
Bishop Paul S. Morton, Sr. is a man with a nurturing heart of an apostolic father with a mandate to Change A Generation.

Our scholarship is named in honor of Bishop Paul S.

The funds available and the number of scholarships awarded each year is determined by the PSMSF Board of Directors.
