Presidential Freedom Scholarships
The Presidential Freedom Scholarships are currently available for the 2006 program year. This program, administered by Learn and Serve America at the Corporation for National and Community Service, provides Presidential recognition and a $1,000 college scholarship to high school juniors and seniors for their leadership in community service. The Corporation provides $500 which must be matched with at least $500 secured by the high school from the community. Students must complete at least 100 hours of community service to be eligible for the scholarship.
This year the Corporation is offering up to 6,500 scholarships (two per high school). The postmark deadline to submit certification forms is May 12, 2006.
We would like to ask for your assistance in disseminating the information about this opportunity to your listserv members. It is a great opportunity for the students in your network.
