Calling All High School Seniors!
If you’re looking for scholarship opportunities to help fund the advancement of your education, then do we have a deal for you! As your local telecommunications provider, it is our pleasure to offer a valuable scholarship opportunity to high school students within our coverage area. ATC Communications is a member of NTCA, who has partnered with the Foundation of Rural Services (FRS), to offer this national scholarship opportunity.
The scholarship application can be downloaded from the FRS website at http://www.frs.org. Thirty (30) scholarship awards in the amount of $2000.00 each will be awarded nationwide. Should a student from our service area be selected to receive one of the 30 scholarships, ATC will contribute an additional $500.00 to the scholarship, bringing the total one-time scholarship award to $2500.00. Students may also be eligible for four FRS Staurulakis Family Scholarships valuated at $5000.00 each or two TMS Scholarships for $1500.00 each. Students who are majoring in math, science, engineering, or medicine are given preference for the FRS Staurulakis Family Scholarships.
Scholarship applications should be sent directly to FRS, postmarked no later than March 3, 2016.
We are very excited to bring this scholarship opportunity to our local school districts! Good luck!
