The deadline is approaching for any Friendswood or Clear Brook High School senior interested in applying for a Friendswood Chamber of Commerce scholarship. The Board of Directors of the Chamber has approved three scholarships to Clear Brook and three scholarships to Friendswood High School students for $1,000 each.
Deadline to apply is Friday, March 9 at noon.
The Chamber has given student funding since 1981.
“Our chamber members are expressing a positive vote for education when they fund these scholarships,” Chamber President Carol Marcantel said.
Applications are submitted through the high school counselors and can be mailed or dropped off at the Friendswood Chamber at 1100 South Friendswood Drive.
The Chamber will present the scholarships at the 32nd Annual Honors Luncheon Thursday, April 26 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at The Green Event Center at 2000 West Parkwood in Friendswood.
This luncheon honors the Scholarship Fund recipients and the top 10 graduating students from Clear Brook and Friendswood High Schools.
