Three local colleges have graciously agreed to fund scholarships through the Greater Taylorville Chamber of Commerce for high school seniors who have maintained a “C” average and meet the entrance requirements for the college to which they are applying.
The colleges and the awards they are offering are as follows:
- Lincoln Land Community College—Tuition and fees for two semesters
- Richland Community College—Tuition for two semesters
- University of Illinois at Springfield—Tuition for two semesters
Applicants may apply for only one award and those who reach the final phase of selection will be interviewed by a panel of judges. In addition to school involvement, the Education Committee will consider the work and home responsibilities being undertaken by all applicants as they review the application forms and interview the candidates.
Applications are due no later than 4:00 p.m. on Friday, February 10, 2012 at the Greater Taylorville Chamber of Commerce office, located at 108 West Market St. in Taylorville.
Copies of the one-page application form are available from all Christian County high school guidance counselors, the Greater Taylorville Chamber of Commerce office, or on line at www.taylorvillechamber.com.
