Applications are due to the Chamber Office by March 1, 2019
The Northeast Tarrant Chamber Scholarship Fund was created in 1989. Special annual fund-raising efforts by the members of The Northeast Tarrant Chamber generate the scholarship's funds, which are then awarded each spring. It is the desire of organizational members to assist graduating seniors in reaching their higher education goals. Community service is a major consideration in the determination of this scholarship as The Northeast Tarrant Chamber recognizes the importance of volunteer service to the vitality of the business environment in any community.
The purpose of this scholarship is to provide one-time funding to graduating seniors to assist them in furthering their higher education goals in a fully accredited community college or four-year college or university. The scholarship will recognize students with academic achievements and financial need that have also proven their commitment to citizenship and service.
Scholarships will be awarded to BISD, KISD and private school students (attending private schools that are Chamber members) residing in the Northeast Tarrant Chamber service area.
Scholarship recipients will be determined by the Scholarship Selection Committee of the Northeast Tarrant Chamber based upon the submission of each completed application.
Funds will be made payable directly to the institution after the student has enrolled and may be used for tuition, books, fees or on-site room and board.
Scholarship recipients will be invited to attend the Northeast Tarrant Chamber Membership Luncheon on May 16, 2019. Scholarship recipients and a parent/legal guardian will be guests of the Chamber.
The Northeast Tarrant Chamber reserves the right to revoke any scholarship award at any time if a recipient is ruled to be ineligible or if the recipient fails to enroll in school within 12 months of award selection, or for other reasons as deemed appropriate by the Chamber Scholarship Committee.
If you have any questions regarding this application, please email email@example.com or call the Chamber at 817-281-9376.
