Applications are now being taken for the Joint Board’s highly successful Abraham Chatman Scholarship program, manager Gary Bonadonna Jr. announced.
He stressed that the scholarship program is open to members’ eligible children throughout the Board’s jurisdiction.
The program can offer up to 10 scholarships worth $2,000 each to Joint Board member’s children. The actual number is based on how many applicants there are and decisions of the Rochester Area Community Foundation (RACF), which administers the program, Bonadonna Jr. noted.
The Chatman program is open to members’ children who:
- Are graduating from high school and continuing on to college OR who are currently enrolled as a freshman, or sophomore in a 2- or 4-year institution
- Will be attending a 2- or 4- year institution during the 2016-2017 school year, and seeking a degree there
- Have a 2.5 college grade point average, or a C+ or higher average if still in high school
- Financial need will also be taken into consideration.
- The deadline is April 15
