Target Stores Offer Scholarships for Students Engaged in Community Service

Deadline: November 1, 2002

Administered by the Citizens’ Scholarship Foundation of America, Inc., Target All-Around Scholarships for Students are awarded each year to high school seniors and college students who are committed to community service and education.

Target will award four $10,000 and over 2,100 $1,000 scholarships for higher education (two per Target store). Awards are offered for institution costs and fees for full-time, post-secondary, undergraduate educational programs.

High school seniors, high school graduates, and current college students who are legal U.S. residents (age 24 and under) are eligible for the scholarships. Applicants must enroll in a full-time undergraduate course of study no later than the fall term of 2003-2004 school year at an accredited two- or four-year college, university, or vocational-technical school in the U.S. (Previous recipients and employees of Target Corporation are not eligible. The program is not currently offered in Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, or outside the United States.)

Final selection of awards will be based on the following criteria: number of community volunteer service hours; applicant’s list of volunteer leadership awards and honors; appraisal form completed by volunteer supervisor or leader; applicant’s short essay on volunteer service; and a grade point average of C/2.0 level or higher. Preference in the selection of recipients will be given to students who reside in a community where a Target store is located.

The Target All-Around Scholarships Information Web page provides official rules and application forms.
