Donald M. Currie Memorial Scholarship Committee
December 4, 2012
Attached is a copy of the application form for the Royal Oak PTA Council’s Donald M. Currie Memorial Scholarship. This year, five (5) $800.00 scholarships will be awarded to seniors at Royal Oak High School or Churchill Community High School (Daytime Alternative High School students only).
To be eligible to receive a scholarship you must be a senior at Royal Oak High School or Churchill Community High School (Daytime Alternative High School students only) and must attend an accredited college, university or trade school in the fall.
Due to the nature of scholarships and the excellence they represent, we ask that you fill in the application accurately and carefully. Please do not write your name anywhere in the application materials except where indicated on the application. Include at least one (1) letter of recommendation from a significant adult other than a family member in your life. This would be considered a character reference and would add support to your application. Also, please type the essay of 250 words or less, as handwritten essays and essays exceeding 250 words will not be accepted. You must also indicate which school you attend in the appropriate places. The applications are to be turned into the counselor’s office by April 12, 2013.
Representatives from the PTA Scholarship Committee will read your application. All applications received will be assigned a letter and the individuals who review the applications will not know the student’s identity. The selection criteria will remain the same as in the past:
“Applicants will be judged on scholarship ability, character,
extracurricular activities in both the school and the community, including
volunteer and paid work experience and need.” *
We appreciate your applying for this scholarship. Good luck and best wishes to you! If you have any questions, please call Maureen Cook at 248-629-4245 or email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
