High school seniors can take advantage of next week’s winter break to apply for a scholarship from the Corridor 9/495 Area Chamber of Commerce.
The Chamber will award over $13K in scholarships this spring. Southborough students and children of the chamber’s members are among those eligible to compete.
Unlike most scholarship opportunities, students don’t have to be continuing to college to receive assistance. Awards are also available to pay for career/trade tools or a certificate program.
The submission deadlines are January 9th. So, it’s a good idea for students to stop by their Guidance office before the winter break to pick up a form. You can also reach out directly to Corridor Nine.
Here are the details:
