Acceptance of applications for a $ 500 scholarship | News, Sports, Jobs
The Newview Chapter of the WVU Community Educational Outreach Service will award a $ 500 scholarship to a deserving senior in Hancock County in 2022. Application is open to seniors at any of the county’s three high schools as well as individuals elderly who have been home-schooled.
According to CEOS President Becky Wiegers, the scholarship will be based on income, merit, and a written essay. Gross family income must be equal to or less than the Hancock County median family income (currently $ 46,000) and applicants must have a GPA of at least 2.5. The essay can be any length, as long as it is at least 500 words long, and must focus on volunteering and its impact on a community or, on a personal level, on the writer.
Applications can be obtained by calling the WVU Hancock County Extension Office in New Cumberland at 304-564-3805. They must be completed and returned to the office, along with supporting documents, no later than May 31.
The Community Educational Outreach Service is one of the many volunteer organizations within the West Virginia University Extension Service. Its mission is to strengthen individuals and families through continuing education, community service and leadership development.
