2023 SCHOLARSHIP ANNOUNCEMENT

The St. Clair County Association of School Boards is pleased to announce that it will award four (4) $1,000 competitive scholarships, countywide, in the 2022-2023 school year.   The scholarship recipients will be determined by May 31, 2023.

Each application received will be evaluated by a committee of school board members from across the county.  Applicants will be evaluated together as a group.  Points may be awarded for grade point average, leadership, financial need, evidence of self-help, community service, etc.

All senior students are eligible to apply.  The SCCASB has eliminated the criteria that the student must choose teaching or some other education-related profession to be considered a candidate.  Students who are planning to attend a community college or trade school, for any profession, are eligible.  Students who are planning to attend a 4-year university or college are also eligible, regardless of their career track.

The deadline to apply is March 7, 2023.  Completed applications must be accompanied by school transcript, one letter of recommendation from a teacher, counselor or principal, and a no more than two page response to essay questions.
