Henderson County DREAM Scholarship: Making the DREAM a Reality
The Henderson County DREAM Scholarship will support a local Henderson County youth who has/will graduate from (private or public) high school in Henderson County and who faces the mandate of out of state tuition costs at a public college/university.
Scholarships will be awarded to high quality candidates who will be evaluated on a variety of factors including GPA, test score, extracurricular activities and involvement, letters of recommendation, and documentation of financial need. Scholarships will be used primarily to support students working towards a certificate or degree program through the community college system; scholarship may also be used for another qualified/accredited institution of higher learning.
Scholarship selection will include an evaluation of the marketability of the candidate’s degree, with preference given to those candidates who are working towards a certification or degree that traditionally leads to employment.
Maximum scholarship award: $2,500, as determined by awards committee
Funds will be for one year, renewable as appropriate, based upon grades and students’ successful participation in educational program.
