In early January, I posted Corridor 9/495 Area Chamber of Commerce’s annual scholarship. My post included a typo indicating the deadline was towards the end of this month. So I’m reposting the news today to highlight the deadline is this Friday, March 3rd.
This spring, the Chamber will award over $16,600 in scholarships to high school seniors. Southborough students are among those eligible to compete.
To qualify, applicants must plan to major or minor in a business degree (examples listed are finance, hospitality, entrepreneurship, marketing, communications, technology, law, trades). That can be an Associates or Bachelors degree, but a certificate program at a technical school also meets the criteria.*
The submission deadline is March 3rd. Stop by the high school guidance office to pick up a form or click here.
Here are more details:
The Corridor 9/495 Regional Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce its 2023 scholarship application is now available.
Applicant must be a 2023 graduating high school student, pursuing a business degree or trade certification, and resides in one of the core towns of the Corridor 9/495 Regional Chamber of Commerce (Westborough, Northborough, Southborough, and Shrewsbury).
Scholarships are awarded based on academic achievement, leadership, work and/or internship experience, essay, financial need, and appearance of application. . .
Since the establishment of scholarship program in 1986, the Chamber has awarded over $407,000 in scholarships. Thanks to the generous support of the business community, the scholarships are made possible through proceeds from the Chamber’s Annual School/Business Partnership Golf Tournament, along with contributions from the Robert J. Lemieux Charitable Trust, individual donation from Leo Casey of B2B CFO, and Howard Grossman of Grossman Development Group of the Lakeway Commons Scholarship fund.
Anyone with questions about the scholarship is encouraged to call the Corridor 9/495 Regional Chamber of Commerce at 508-836-4444.
*Years ago, the Chamber’s scholarships also offered the option of covering trade tools for those headed straight into the workforce, but that changed at some point.
