MURRYSVILLE, Pa. (AP) - Some of the money collected after a 2014 mass stabbing at a Pennsylvania high school will be used to establish a scholarship.

The We Are FR fund was set up after authorities said a student attacked fellow students and a security guard at Franklin Regional Senior High School in April 2014.

The money had been used to help pay medical expenses for injured students as well as crisis counseling. But the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review (https://bit.ly/1LtB4f6 ) reports that more than $34,000 will now be used to create an annual We Are Franklin Regional Scholarship.

Franklin Regional seniors with a grade-point average of at least 2.5 are eligible to apply until the end of March. Community Foundation Executive Director Phil Koch says a scholarship of up to $1,300 will be awarded in June.
