BERKELEY COLLEGE SCHOLARSHIPS AVAILABLE TO
STUDENTS ASSISTING GLOBAL RELIEF EFFORTS
Christine Richard, Vice President of Enrollment Services at Berkeley College, is pleased to announce the availability of a new scholarship for high school seniors who have assisted in humanitarian relief efforts to benefit our beleaguered world. A scholarship will be given from each Berkeley College campus.
“Berkeley College is committed to serving the local community and beyond, and we are looking to recognize students who share these values,” said Ms. Richard.
All students who have contributed to local or global relief efforts though community service, donations or fundraising are eligible. The award of up to $1,000 per quarter will be applied to a student’s first academic year at Berkeley College, beginning in either the Summer or Fall 2010 quarter.
To apply, students must submit a personal statement summarizing his or her contribution to a specialized relief effort. Each applicant also needs a letter of recommendation from his or her guidance counselor, principal or teacher. The documents are to be sent via e-mail by June 1 to mnb@BerkeleyCollege.edu.
