The combined efforts of a charitable trust and foundation has led to the awarding of a scholarship to Paris Junior College student David Kellar, of Plano. Kellar resides in Paris while he completes his Associate Degree in Applied Science in horology.

The Harold J. and Marie Borneman Greenwood Memorial Fund of the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation made a donation of $5,000 to the American Watchmakers-Clockmakers Institute ELM Charitable Trust to provide scholarships for students studying watchmaking and watch repair.

PJC belongs to the Research and Education Council of the AW-CI. Each year fund trustees award an equal share of available funds to students at Research and Education Council member schools. Students must receive a recommendation from watchmaking faculty to be eligible.

ELM stands for Education in watch and clock repair, Library funding to lend horological texts and publish horological books, and Museum funding to preserve unique timepieces and tools for study, research and local viewing. The Institute is located in Harrison, Ohio.
