The Chamber’s heritage of awarding scholarship to local high school students is currently accepting applications from students of Heights High, Waltrip, Scarborough, Northside, Booker T. Washington, Lutheran North, St. Pius X, New Heights Christian Academy, Heights Charter, St. Thomas, Memorial Hall, Harmony and YES Central Campus and Kipp Central.
With the ever increasing cost of education, many families cannot send their children to college without financial assistance. Chamber members have supported this valuable program by being a single donor of $2,000, or co-sponsorships can be arranged with contributions in amounts combining up to $2,000. More than $350,000 in scholarships has been awarded by the Chamber. The scholarships will be presented May 18, 2017 at the annual Education Luncheon.
Students are evaluated on the basis of need shown in their applications, undergo interviews by Chamber volunteers, and complete essays regarding their goals and how those goals will make a difference in their life and their community. Applications are on the chamber website.
