Be sure to check back in January many of the scholarships will open for applications. Pay close attention to the Valley Proteins Fellowships opportunities. Ten fellowships will be awarded for the 2012-2013 academic year based on strong academic records, leadership potential and commitment to community service. The deadline to apply is April 2, 2012.
In addition to receiving up to $5,000 for tuition, books, fees, and supplies, the program provides the Fellows with opportunities to share in cultural and educational experiences and meet with successful business and government leaders from across the commonwealth. Fellows will also receive a $3,000 summer stipend. In addition to receiving a scholarship valued at approximately $10,000, the Fellows will receive support and inspiration from each other to continue pursuing their educational goals and serving their community—priceless!
