OACDG Scholarship applications available
The Oskaloosa Area Chamber & Development Group is happy to announce that scholarships will again be available through its Chamber Scholars program, now in its 16th year.
High school seniors living in Mahaska County and attending any high school are eligible to apply. Pick up an application from your school counselor, from the Oskaloosa Area Chamber office or at www.oacdg.org. Scholarships will be offered in the amounts of $500 and up, and are sponsored by area businesses and industries. Last year $8,000 was distributed to 15 students from North Mahaska, Eddyville/Blakesburg, Oskaloosa, and Pella Christian.
The application requests such information as participation in school and community activities, as well as short essays on “What do you value most about Mahaska County and calling it your Hometown” and “What do you see yourself doing in 6 to 8 years?” Typed Chamber Scholars applications and transcripts are due at the Chamber no later than Thursday, April 18, 2013.
For further information, to request an application form, or to contribute to the fund contact the Oskaloosa Chamber at 641.672.2591 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
