2017 APCA Scholarship Program
APCA makes a difference in our community by supporting graduating high school seniors with their college education through our scholarship awards. APCA awards national scholarships to students residing in any state with a local APCA chapter. All students who apply will be considered for the national scholarships awards. Students who are not awarded national scholarships will be considered for state scholarships as supported by local APCA chapters.
Applicants must meet ALL of the following eligibility requirements:
- All full-time graduating high school seniors in good academic standing (minimum unweighted GPA 3.40 on 4-point scale), of any ethnic or cultural background, who will attend an accredited college or university (2-year and 4-year) in Fall 2017.
- Applicants who are United States citizens or permanent residents of the United States.
- Applicants who are residents of one of the following states or metropolitan area where we currently have APCA chapters: Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Illinois, Indiana, Michigan, Missouri, New Jersey, Ohio, Texas, Washington, Wisconsin, and the Washington, D.C. Metropolitan Area (Washington D.C., Maryland, and Virginia).
Students interested in applying will need to complete an application form that includes a student essay and provide one recommendation letter. Students who make it into the final round will also be required to send in an official high school transcript.
