EDUCATION FOUNDATION SEEKS APPLICANTS FOR SUMMER SCHOLARSHIPS

 

The Greensville County Education Foundation will be offering scholarships to students in grades four through eleven who are interested in attending academic summer camps.

Students must have or be in the process of applying to a program and must have personal and school recommendations to qualify.

The first priority of the committee is to assist students who may not ordinarily have an opportunity to spend a week or two on a college campus.  However, all students are encouraged to apply.

The students can pursue special interests in math, science, art, speech, drama, journalism, music, sports, history, technology, engineering, business, politics or leadership skills.  While not a full scholarship, this program provides some financial support.

Among schools attended in the past are East Carolina University, Norfolk State University, Ferrum College and Johns Hopkins University.

Students have found the experience helpful in forming such goals as becoming doctors, veterinarians, actors, and politicians.  Several students have said that the hands-on experiences have helped them more clearly understand subjects taught in school.

Parents of students interested in this program may contact a school guidance counselor at Greensville Elementary, Belfield Elementary, E. W. Wyatt Middle School and Greensville County High School.

Guidance counselors can provide more detailed information.

Previous recipients are not eligible.

Applications will be accepted through Friday, May 31, 2019

 

Any Individual, parents of past recipients, organization or business can make a tax deductible contribution to the Education Foundation for the scholarship program by contacting Curtis Young at the School Board Office, (434) 634-3748.
