Welcome to the Scholarship Corner!
Hello everyone, welcome to the first edition of Scholarship Corner.
Let me introduce myself, my name is Lisa Runyan and I’m on the Board of Directors for the Clay County Chamber of Commerce as well as Director of the Clay County Children’s Policy Council and a lifelong children’s advocate. I am writing this column to help parents and teachers who want to invest in their children’s education.
So often, parents think about scholarships only for their children in High School. The truth is that it’s never too early to be looking for award and scholarship opportunities. Students who are awarded scholarships in middle school are more likely to be awarded scholarships in High School.
This edition will focus on awards for children 13 years and younger. Scholarships for this age group are the hardest to find, so I’m happy to be able to bring this lengthy list to you. A few of these awards will allow students up to 15 years of age. Pay special attention to the due dates as these are non-negotiable. Some of these awards are team sponsored, so get involved and help mentor a team in your school or encourage participation with the help of a teacher.
Check back often, as I will highlight resources and scholarship opportunities as I find them. Click on each link to be directed to the individual award website.
