2017 KIRBYVILLE CHAMBER of COMMERCE SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM
Information and Application
Deadline: March 15, 2017
The Kirbyville Chamber of Commerce (KCoC) provides scholarships each year to deserving high school seniors, graduating in the Spring following this application deadline, who are currently enrolled and attending Kirbyville High School or a bona fide private, charter or home school curriculum with recognized, standardized testing protocols and/or acceptance by a college, trade or technical school (with a minimum, two-year program).
The 2017 awards are: Four (4), $500 scholarships.
Applicants for a KCoC Scholarship must:
Be a graduating high school senior. (You cannot have graduated in the previous year or be in college already as a full-time student to be eligible for this scholarship. It is intended to help high school seniors get started immediately in college).
Demonstrate exceptional school attendance.
Demonstrate high academic achievement.
Demonstrate leadership and/or high level of motivation.
Applicants are required to submit the following MANDATORY items:
Transcript or certified copy of grades with:
Grade point average and scale used (whether 4 pt. scale, 5 pt. scale, etc.)
Proficiency test scores (STAAR, etc. - whatever standardized testing system is used
ACT/SAT scores, if taken). It is very important to include all the above information so that all scholarship applicants can be evaluated on the same criteria.
TWO letters of recommendation; one from a community leader and one from a high school instructor.
One (1) recent photo (if a professional photo is not available, even a cell-phone selfie will be accepted, if a better-quality portrait is unavailable). This is important for the presentations at the Chamber of Commerce Banquet.
In fairness to all other applicants who follow the instructions and submit complete applications, any incomplete applications will be rejected!
