2015 Chapter Scholarships Applications Available!

Ark-La-Tex Chapter scholarship applications are now available for children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren of chapter members in good standing (dues current for 2014 & 2015). Applicants must be graduating high school students, class of 2015, who will attend college in the fall of 2015. All scholarship applications will be evaluated on academic performance, earned honors, leadership, and involvement in school and community activities. Financial need is not a consideration.

The chapter will award a minimum of 16 academic scholarships with a value of $20,000. Additional scholarships may be awarded depending on the generosity of chapter members when making a contribution to the scholarship fund when paying dues and additional funds donated for memorial or special designated scholarships. The Chapter has a matching scholarship program that will match scholarship donations for designed scholarship up to $2,000. A donation of $500 will be matched by the chapter to fund a $1,000 scholarship or a $1,000 donation will be matched by the chapter to provide a $2,000 scholarship. For more information on matching scholarships, contact scholarship chairman George Finck.

The deadline for submitting completed applications is April 15, 2015. Scholarship selection results will be available after May 1, 2015. Scholarship applications may be obtained by calling Scholarship Chairman George Finck at (318) 965-4124 or e-mail at gfincksr@gmail.com or the application request form below.

Also provide the name, rank, relationship and address of your Ark-La-Tex Chapter sponsor. Further scholarship information can be viewed at the chapter website at www.arklatexmoaa.org .

Don’t miss out on this valuable chapter benefit if you have children, grand-children or even great-grandchildren graduating from high school this year!
