11th ACVVC Scholarship Program Update (TR 3rd Q 2016)
I received a total of 15 scholarship applications by the May 15th deadline this year. That is four fewer applications than were submitted in 2015. All of the applicants are children of our members. 12 applicants are female and 3 are male. The youngest applicant is 18 years of age and the oldest is 42 years old. Seven of these students fall into the “traditional” college age bracket (18-24 years of age). This is the first year we have had fewer than 50% of the applicants in the “traditional” college age bracket.
The applications came from all across the country ranging from California to Connecticut. The students are majoring in a variety of disciplines including: Medicine, Education, Nursing, Sociology, Science and English. The average Grade Point Average of the applicants is 3.48.
The 11th ACVVC Board of Directors is pleased to be able to award scholarships to all of these deserving applicants this year. Their names and photos will appear in upcoming issues of Thunder Run.
