Education Aid $5,000 Scholarship for Victims of Hurricane Sandy

 

Award Amount

  • $5,000 (Several Available)

Details

Education Aid makes education accessible to many students who would otherwise be unable to afford to attend school. For these disadvantaged students, getting the job training they need, or earning a college degree can only be made possible with the type of financial support Education Aid provides. Our scholarship programs start at $5,000 and can provide support for a semester, year, or through graduation.

Education Aid, Inc. announced a $5,000 Scholarship Program that will be awarded to a student who has been impacted by Hurricane Sandy, and who has a desperate need for this type of financial support to be able to stay in school until they can graduate. The funding for this Scholarship Program came from Education Aid’s 2012 50/50 Cash Raffle and Holiday Dinner Fundraiser. Applicants must have received some type of funding from FEMA for Hurricane Sandy to qualify for this Program. The Program funds will be distributed to the student during the 2013-2014 academic school year.

The devastation caused by Hurricane Sandy has caused a huge financial burden to many families along the east coast. Unfortunately, this burden could have a huge impact on their ability to pay for basic living expenses while enrolled in school. As a result, many students will be forced to put their education on hold or drop out completely. The scholarship was developed to help these economically disadvantaged students stay in school by providing the financial support they desperately need to pay for these expenses.

The recipient will be awarded $5,000 that will go towards non-tuition related expenses such as:

  • Rent
  • Childcare
  • Books and School Supplies
  • Utilities – Gas and Electric

Only the first 200 applicants are guaranteed consideration for the scholarship program. Funding for the Scholarship recipient will be for the academic school year 2013-2014.

 

Deadline

  • May 1, 2013 (Several Available)
