The 100 Club of Arizona’s 2016-2017 Online Scholarship Application Program Opens 1/6/2016
A New Year symbolizes a new and fresh start, especially for young people either heading toward college soon or already in the midst of their undergraduate education. The 100 Club’s annual scholarship program for the 2016-2017 school year will kick off on Wed., January 6, 2016 via the scholarship page on the 100 Club’s web site, www.100club.org. The deadline for submissions is Friday, March 4, 2016 at 5 p.m. MST. Once again, only electronic applications will be accepted. Students who submitted scholarship applications last year will already be familiar with the online application system.
PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING CHANGE IN THE GPA ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENT FOR THE 2016-17
SCHOLARSHIP PROGRAM YEAR: Students must have a GPA of 2.5 or higher in order to apply. Please note; however, that like many other academic scholarships, the 100 Club of Arizona reserves the right to change this or other requirements at any time in the future.
Additionally, please note one change to the scholarship application itself and the scoring components
this year: no points will be awarded for 100 Club memberships. While memberships and donations in general significantly help to sustain the 100 Club organization’s mission, including the annual scholarship program, points will be based on objective elements only: GPA, volunteer hours, four 100-word short answer questions, and a 750-word essay response to a specific prompt.
Interested applicants (children or spouses of a public safety officer or firefighter) can get started (as of 1/6/16) by visiting the Scholarship page on the 100 Club’s web site. Should you have any questions or need assistance in completing the application, you may contact the independent Scholarship Program Manager on behalf of the 100 Club, Mary Martha Gingerella, at firstname.lastname@example.org or (480)329-0450 or Suzanne at the 100 Club office at 602-485-0100.
The 100 Club is extremely grateful for the everyday sacrifices all of you make to protect our community. We welcome the opportunity to assist your families in pursuing a higher education!
