Scott Announces Scholarship Opportunity For Students
share: f t
Congressman David Scott (D-GA) announced today that applications for the 2006 Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) Spouses Education Scholarship are available in his District offices and online at www.cbcfinc.org.

“I am pleased to announce the availability of scholarships for deserving 13th District students through the CBC Spouses Education Fund,” said Congressman Scott. “This scholarship presents a wonderful opportunity to expand educational resources available for a new generation of leaders from our community.”

The scholarship is offered to students in the 13th Congressional District, which includes part of the City of Atlanta and portions of 11 counties: Clayton, Fulton, Gwinnett, Dekalb, Rockdale, Henry, Newton, Walton, Fayette, Butts and Spalding. The scholarship is open to high school seniors or full-time undergraduate, graduate or professional school students with a minimum 2.5 grade point average.

All completed applications must be returned to Congressman Scott’s District Office no later than 5:30 p.m. on Monday, May 1, 2006.

The CBC Spouses Education Scholarship Fund was established in 1988 in response to federal cuts in spending for education programs and scholarships. This program provides tuition assistance to enable students to fulfill their higher education goals. The scholarships are awarded in the Congressional Districts of each member of the Congressional Black Caucus.

For more information, interested students may contact Chandra Harris in Scott’s District Office at 770-210-5073.
