Seniors Helping Seniors Scholarship
The Seniors Helping Seniors Scholarship is for graduating high school students in Valdez. It is intended to assist in the advancement of education within the state of Alaska, which may include vocational schooling, college, or university.
Any member of the Valdez High School faculty (teachers, office and custodial staff, coaches, etc.) may submit a separate nomination for up to three students. The deadline for submission is Friday, April 30, 2021.
The Valdez Senior Center seeks recommendations of students who need a financial boost to further their education or may lack support in other areas of their lives. The VSC wants to see these students succeed! The student's overall high school GPA will be considered, but we acknowledge that every student learns differently, and a GPA does not always fully represent a student’s capabilities and motivation. The Valdez Senior Center Scholarship Committee will complete a comprehensive review of each nomination.
In 2020, the Valdez Senior Center granted $2,550 in scholarships to three students.
Please note, students related to VSC staff are ineligible for scholarship consideration. For questions, please contact the Valdez Senior Center at (907) 835-5032 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
