The Community Resource Opportunity Project (C.R.O.P) Foundation, Inc., a non-profit, 501(c)(3) community-based organization, announces the 2018 C.R.O.P Foundation Scholarship Awards Program. Under the award program, scholarships will be competitively awarded to graduating seniors attending a public high school in the City of Chesapeake, VA.
Up to four (4) scholarships ranging from $500.00 to $1000.00 are available for graduating seniors attending a public high school in Chesapeake, VA.
Program Guidelines & Priorities:
* Seeking graduating seniors with a record of volunteerism in the community in non-school sponsored activities as well as participation in extracurricular school activities.
* Applicants must have a minimum GPA of 3.0, a total family annual income under $70,000, and plan to attend a 2 or 4 year college or technical school.
* Scholarship funds will be paid in August 2018 or January 2019 for the second semester of the student’s first year directly to the college and not to the student. It will be the student’s responsibility to submit to the Foundation at that time information indicating the student ID number/or student account information and college information for payment.
* Applicants must have the endorsement of their Guidance Counselor on their application attesting they are a qualified fit for this scholarship program. The C.R.O.P Foundation strongly suggests that each participating high school present this opportunity to the strongest applicants that match this program’s guidelines. Application deadline is May 28, 2018 by 11:59 p.m. to be received if the Foundation. Late applications are not accepted.
E-mail one pdf file of a completed application package and supporting documents (This includes application with signoff by Guidance Department, essays, resume, and school transcript) to the C.R.O.P Foundation Scholarship Committee at firstname.lastname@example.org by the aforementioned due date for consideration.
