The city of Meridian has announced it will award four $1,000 scholarships to high school seniors planning on furthering their education this fall.
To be eligible, applicants must live in Meridian or its area of impact, or have been a member of the Mayor’s Youth Advisory Council since January 2012; be graduating in the spring of 2013 and plan on attending an accredited college or vocational education program in the fall of 2013.
The scholarships, which are funded by State of the City Address sponsors, will be awarded to successful applicants who demonstrate evidence of leadership potential through their community involvement, as well as volunteerism, school activities or work experience.
“By supporting the youth in gaining the skills they need to become more successful, we are helping to build future leaders once they return to Meridian after graduating from college,” said Mayor Tammy de Weerd in a press release.
Scholarship application forms can be found online or during regular business hours from the Mayor’s Office in City Hall at 33 E. Broadway Ave.
The city will accept the scholarships applications from March 1 through April 5. Completed applications should be sent or delivered to the Mayor’s Office located on the third floor of Meridian City Hall, 33 E. Broadway Ave., Meridian, Idaho, 83642.
