2014 Scholarship Program
Livonia Chamber of Commerce Scholarship Program
Adult Learner Applications Due Friday, February 7, 2014
High School Seniors Applications Due Friday, May 16, 2014
All applications must be received by 4 p.m. on final due date.
The Livonia Chamber of Commerce plans to hand out four (4) $1,000 scholarships in 2014. Two awards will go to an adult learner in the February, and the other two awards will go to a high school senior, graduating from one of the five Livonia high schools, in the spring.
An adult learner is defined as an independent, career-minded student looking to complete an undergraduate degree or transition into another undergraduate or graduate discipline. The adult learner scholarship will be announced at the Chamber’s Leadership and Awards Celebration event on February 20, 2014.
Eligible high school seniors must graduate in 2014 from Livonia Franklin, Churchill, Stevenson, Clarenceville, or Ladywood High School. This scholarship will be announced at an event to be named in spring 2014.
It is the intention of the Livonia Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors to make this scholarship program an annual venture by soliciting donations and/or using proceeds from Chamber programming. Scholarship proceeds must be used at a Livonia Chamber of Commerce member institution. (Those schools are: Schoolcraft College, Madonna University, Davenport University, Eastern Michigan University, Central Michigan University, Northwood University, ITT Technical Institute, Walsh College, Henry Ford Community College, Wayne State University, and Lawrence Technological University.) The award will be directly sent to the school of the winner’s choice upon complete student enrollment in that institution.
Applicants must complete application below and write a 500-word essay for consideration of the scholarship. No interviews are planned. The Livonia Chamber of Commerce’s Scholarship Committee will review applications and essays as part of the selection process.
Adult learner scholarship winners must utilize the award for courses taken during the 2014 calendar year; High school scholarship winner must utilize the award during the 2014-15 school year. Failure to use the scholarship in a timely fashion will result in forfeiture of the award.
These scholarships are open to full-time and part-time students. Financial need or discipline of study will not be factors in the selection process.
