Exceptional Scholarship Opportunity for 7th Graders!

The JKC Young Scholars program is accepting applications now through April from those students in their 7th grade year.
The program provides exceptional students with individualized educational guidance and educational services, which could include tutors, summer programs, on-line classes, computers, and possible tuition support through their high school years and continued support as they enter the college of their choice. I am eager to make this opportunity available to all that qualify.
It is a scholarship program that could dramatically enhance a students academic possibilities. The Young Scholars Program is highly competitive and attracts outstanding applicants from across the United States.
The specific criteria for consideration are:

  • Current 7th grade students
  • Strong academic record, awards/honors, teacher recommendation
  • Financial need
  • Motivation, Leadership
  • An appreciation for the arts, music, literature, or similar fields

The application (there is no cost to apply) has a deadline date of April 26, 2010 and can be downloaded from their site 
This is a great opportunity for students that meet the criteria, it is an in-depth application so I would suggest beginning the process of completing it as early as possible.
