Scott Announces Scholarship Opportunities

Applications now available for Congressional Black Caucus Foundation Scholarships

Congressman David Scott (D-GA) announced today that applications for the 2011 Congressional Black Caucus Foundation Scholarships are now available.   

“I am pleased to announce the availability of scholarships for deserving 13th District students,” said Congressman Scott.  “These scholarships present a wonderful opportunity to expand educational resources available for a new generation of scholars from our community.”

The scholarships are offered to students in the 13th Congressional District, which includes portions of 6 counties: Clayton, Cobb, Fulton, DeKalb, Douglas and Henry.  High school seniors or full-time undergraduate, graduate or professional school students with a minimum 2.5 grade point average can apply for the scholarships. 

All completed applications must be submitted by Monday, March 28, 2011 to either Congressman Scott’s Jonesboro or Smyrna District Office.

The CBC Scholarships were established in 1988 in response to federal cuts in spending for education programs and scholarships.  These programs provide 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.
