Need money for college?
Arlington ISD seniors now is your chance to secure funds for college by applying for the Innovation and Greater Arlington Chamber scholarships! The Greater Arlington Chamber of Commerce is awarding scholarships specifically to Arlington ISD graduating seniors who want to continue their education at the next level.
As a local partner of the Arlington ISD, the chamber is committed to developing the community’s future by providing graduating seniors with unique opportunities to pay for college. So far, the chamber has provided more than $306,000 in scholarships to graduating seniors in the Arlington ISD and students attending Tarrant County College and/or the University of Texas at Arlington.
“We’re thrilled to be able to offer these scholarship opportunities to Arlington ISD students again this year,” said Alicia Collins-Butler, the director of education, workforce and community development. “Our goal is to champion economic and community prosperity, which includes making sure the opportunities are available to students. Now it’s the students’ turn to take advantage of these resources.”
Sponsored by the Pettinger Foundation, the Innovation Scholarship is a STEM-based scholarship that aims to help students pursuing a four-year degree in science, engineering or mathematics from UTA. Two $5,000 scholarships will be awarded to graduating Arlington ISD students who are currently enrolled in a STEM-related career pathway. Applicants are required to complete an online application for consideration.
Seven $2,500 scholarships will be awarded to graduating seniors from each traditional high school and Arlington Collegiate for the Greater Arlington Chamber Scholarship. Unlike the Innovation Scholarship, students who receive this scholarship can attend a college or university of their choice. Applicants are required to complete an online application and write an essay on the topic provided.
That’s nearly $30,000 in scholarships, so don’t miss this opportunity to apply. Both scholarship applications are due February 25, 2022, at midnight.
