Soroptimist offers scholarship
Soroptimist International of Somerset County will award three $500 scholarships this spring. High school seniors (male or female) who plan to attend college, junior college or a trade or technical school are encouraged to apply. Applicants, who are well-rounded students, must be residents of Somerset County.
Applications will be judged on various criteria including financial need, grades, extracurricular activities and a short essay. Deadline to apply is April 10.
Applications are available at the high school guidance offices or by e-mailing Wendy Stemple at firstname.lastname@example.org. Soroptimist International of Somerset County has been awarding scholarships to deserving high school students for more than 25 years.
Funds are generated for the scholarships and awards through the club’s annual Valentine Balloon Sale and pumpkin/chocolate roll sales.
