ON-TRACK SCHOLARSHIP

The Kiwanis Club of Bloomington is again making available its “On-Track Scholarship” to a Graduating Senior.  This $1,000.00, non-renewable award is available to students who during their high school years faced academic, physical or personal challenges.  The nature of these challenges should have had the potential to lead the student “off track” in school.   However, due to the student’s perseverance, they overcame the obstacles and remained “On Track” successfully moving toward a college education. 

Qualifying students must reside in Bloomington-Normal and must have already been accepted to an accredited college or university.

We would ask that you please notify all of the guidance counselors of this opportunity.  Attached, please find a PDF application form.  Completed applications and supporting materials must be postmarked by April 30th, 2015.
