MEOA STUDENT SCHOLARSHIPS NOW AVAILABLE. DUE MAY 25, 2018

MEOA is proud to provide scholarships in the amount of $750 to five deserving students this year. Last year we had many incredible applicants, and I urge each MEOA member to nominate a deserving student they work with. You will find the scholarship application materials attached.

Please be sure to review the application materials with your nominee in order to ensure that we receive applications with all of the following completed:

  • A nomination form from an MEOA member
  • A letter of recommendation from the nominating MEOA member
  • The student’s most recent high school or college transcript
  • The student’s scholarship application
  • The student’s personal essay
  • A copy of the student’s 2018-2019 financial aid award letter or 2017-2018 financial aid award letter for returning college students.
  • A signed consent and release form.

All applications must be received or postmarked by May 25, 2018.

The anticipated timeline is as follows: All applications are due on May 25, 2018. The Scholarship Committee members will receive copies of applications and guidelines for selection by June 8, 2018. Committee members will return their completed scoring rubrics to the chair by August 17, 2018. The Chair will tally results (consulting committee members by phone in the event of ties) by August 24, 2018. Scholarship award winners and their MEOA nominators will be notified by August 31, 2018. Applicants who are not selected to receive an MEOA scholarship award will also be notified.

MEOA Scholarship winners will be presented with their award at the luncheon held during the 34th annual MEOA conference at the UMASS Lowell Inn and Conference Center, Lowell, MA, on October 19, 2018. The luncheon is always a very special event during the conference. Award recipients will receive a check on the day of the conference, and it is expected that recipients make every effort to attend this event to receive their award and address the membership.

IF ANY MEOA MEMBERS ARE INTERESTED IN SERVING ON THE SCHOLARSHIP COMMITTEE, PLEASE CONTACT VALERIE LAPORTE AT 978-630-9820 OR  vlaporte@mwcc.mass.edu
