FIRST E-mail Blast- Target Scholarships

Greetings FRC Teams:

Each year, the Target Corporation awards more than 2,100 All-Around Scholarships – including four $10,000 national scholarships and two smaller scholarships for each Target store – to high school seniors and college students age 24 or younger. The scholarships recognize volunteer work as well as academic achievement.

High school seniors, high school graduates, and current undergraduate college students (age 24 and under) who are legal U.S. residents are eligible to apply. Applicants must enroll in a full-time undergraduate course of study at an accredited two- or four-year college, university, or vocational/technical school in the U.S. no later than the fall term of the 2004-2005. The program is not offered in Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, or outside the U.S.

The Citizens’ Scholarship Foundation of America will select recipients based on number of community volunteer service hours; volunteer leadership awards and honors; appraisal form completed by volunteer supervisor or leader; essay on volunteer service; and grade point average of 2.0 or higher (C average).

For complete eligibility information and to download an application form, visit the Target Web site.
