The New Point Volunteer Fire Department/Carl H. and Goldia Miller Scholarship Program will award four $500 scholarships in May. The awards are based on volunteer community service work completed by students during their high school years, according to a press release.
This year’s graduating seniors from Batesville, Jac-Cen-Del, Greensburg, North Decatur and South Decatur high schools who have applied, been accepted and plan to study at a postsecondary institution in 2014 may apply. The scholarships are awarded for study at accredited four- and two-year colleges and vocational technical, business and trade schools.
Applications are evaluated anonymously. Financial need is not a consideration. The awards will be presented to the winning students at their school academic awards programs in May.
Applications are available at high school guidance offices. To be considered, completed forms must be received by the scholarship committee no later than Friday, May 2.
