Known as the “I Am College Bound” Scholarship, this needs-based cash award is funded through the generosity of Manchester School District employees who participated in an “I Am College Bound” Scholarship fundraiser on November 20, 2015.
The spirit of the scholarship is solely intended to promote the college-going culture of the school district and to help all students believe in their choice to attend college if they so desire. The scholarship will be used to help a student defray the cost of attending a two- or four-year institution.
ELIGIBILITY: Students who are graduating from one of the four public high schools in the Manchester School District, are accepted and enrolled in a recognized two or four year college or university, and will be the first member of their immediate family (mother, father, siblings) to attend any postsecondary academic institution of higher learning.
AMOUNT/RESTRICTION OF USE:This is a restricted one-time $2,000 award and not renewable
over the student’s college career. The scholarship will be made payable in check form directly to the
institution of the selected student.
NOTIFICATIONS AND DEADLINES:The deadline for filing the application is April 21, 2016. The selected recipient will be chosen by a panel of Manchester School District educators and community members. S/he will be notified by mail on or before May 13, 2016.
