Graduating seniors residing in Auburn attending any public or private accredited high school in Auburn (including home school) are eligible for the scholarship. “We started out offering two scholarships in 2012 for $1,000. Based on community support we have increased that number to six scholarships worth $1,500 each,” said See Ya Later Foundation Board member Brian Williams.
How to Apply:
Auburn seniors wanting to apply for the scholarship should follow the application criteria outlined on the See Ya Later website. Here are the basic requirements:
- Submit an online application
- Email only one Letter of Recommendation to Alissa@seeyalater.org
- Students must submit/email a Community Service Timeline to Alissa@seeyalater.org
Applications due by May 9th
Williams also shared pointers for those applying, “don’t short cut anything. Fill out a complete application. Sell yourself. Tell the committee about what you have done and what you want to do. We want to know how you are making an impact in the community and how you will continue to do so in the future.”
Students attending technical or trade schools are eligible for the Scott Banke Memorial Scholarship Fund. All awarded students must be enrolled, with a student ID number before funds being issued. Scholarship funds are issued directly to the awarded student’s school.
See Ya Later’s Scott Banke Memorial Scholarship Fund is one of several scholarship opportunities available to Auburn seniors.
