Purpose: The Perlman Foundation PK Management Scholarship Fund is a scholarship fund created for the dependents of eligible employees of PK Management Company. The purpose of the fund is to advance education by providing scholarships to dependents (as herein described). “Dependents” shall mean the natural, adopted, or step-relationship children of any eligible employee, or children under the guardianship of any eligible employee. “Eligible employee” pertains to all full-time employees of PK Management Company who have been employed by the company continuously for a period of at least one year.
Scholarships are for one year, relative to coursework in pursuit of a degree at a college or university.

Scholarship payments made to the “Qualified Educational Institution” of the recipient’s choice must be applied to tuition, fees, books, supplies, or equipment required for coursework.
