With a New Year just around the corner, it also symbolizes the start of the 100 Club’s Annual Scholarship Application season for young people either heading toward college soon or already in the midst of their undergraduate education. The 100 Club’s Annual Scholarship Program for the 2017-2018 school year will kick off on Tues., January 17, 2017 via the scholarship page on the 100 Club’s web site, www.100club.org. PLEASE NOTE this important change for the 2017 Scholarship Year: the 100 Club will only be accepting 200 scholarship applications. As a result, there is no deadline for submissions as once the system has received 200 submissions, it will no longer accept any more applications. The continuous explosive growth of this program, along with the costs of managing such a large program, has dictated a need for a more manageable and sustainable number of applications. Therefore, applicants are strongly encouraged to submit their applications as soon as the open date (1/17/2017) hits. Students who submitted scholarship applications last year will already be familiar with the online application system.
ALSO: Another significant and exciting change made to this year’s program is the inclusion of active first responders (E.g., law enforcement officers and Fire Fighters) who may wish to return to school to further their education in their existing fields. These active first responder must attend full time (12 hours or more) like any other student and continue their studies in law enforcement or fire science fields to qualify. All students must have a GPA of 2.5 or higher in order to apply. Please note; however, that like many other academic scholarships, the 100 Club of Arizona reserves the right to change this or other requirements at any time in the future.
Scholarship application points are based on objective elements only: GPA, volunteer hours, four 100-word short answer questions, and a 750-word essay response to a specific prompt.
Interested applicants (children or spouses of a public safety officer or firefighter and/or active officers or firefighters) can get started (as of 1/17/17) by visiting the Scholarship page on the 100 Club’s web site. Should you have any questions or need assistance in completing the application, you may contact the independent Scholarship Program Manager on behalf of the 100 Club, Mary Martha Gingerella, at email@example.com or (480)329-0450 or Suzanne at the 100 Club office at 602-485-0100.
The 100 Club is extremely grateful for the everyday sacrifices all of you make to protect our community. We welcome the opportunity to assist you and your families in pursuing a higher education!
