Scholarship deadline extended
The deadline for the Virginia Walker Memorial Scholarship Fund has been extended to Thursday, Feb. 28. Each year, Regional Youth Services awards scholarships to foster children who were with the agency at any point since its founding in 1973. The applicants will be selected based on several criteria including an interview, letters of recommendation, financial need, academic record, and extracurricular and community activities. Past scholarship winners may reapply.
Scholarships are a minimum of $500 and up to a maximum of $5,000. The RYS Board of Directors determines the amount and number of scholarships awarded each year, which may be used only for tuition, fees, books, and room/board. The application can be found at the RYS website at regionalys.org or email to email@example.com
