Guidelines for Funds Administration

The student pursuing a two-year or a four-year program will be awarded $250.00 during the first year, paid directly to the student on completion of the 1st semester and presentation of his/her grade point average transcript to the Chamber Office.

Written proof of return to college for the 2nd semester must also be made at that time.

If the student does not complete his/her course studies, the funds will revert to the scholarship committee to be awarded to a student attending college, from the same graduating class.
