The Vocational Scholarship Committee is excited to offer two students (one male, one female) who are graduating high school or receiving their GED this year each a vocational scholarship of $1,000 or more. The scholarship is to help with tuition, fees, books, and materials from a vocational program. Vocational programs can include nursing schools, technical schools (culinary arts, massage therapy, office management, fashion design, etc.).
The top applicants for these vocational scholarships will also be given a chance to win additional vocational scholarship funds at the state level. This is the first year that the Ballard Elks Chapter is offering a local vocational scholarship, designed to help students who are seeking an alternative to traditional college education and can benefit from funding support.
In early January, the committee reached out to several Seattle high schools and provided information to share with students. We look forward to receiving applications and awarding the scholarships this spring.
If you know a student who is interested or has questions about the scholarship, please contact: Melissa Day at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Note: applications are due at the Ballard Elks Lodge by March 2, 2018.
