The New Melle Chamber of Commerce will accept applications for the 2022-2023 school year from February 1 to March 31, 2022. Four scholarships of $2000 each will be awarded this year to students attending an accredited trade school, vocational/technical school, community college or college/university.
Applicants must reside within the New Melle Fire Protection District, maintain at least a 2.5 GPA, and be enrolled as a full-time student. Students pursuing a technical/vocational/trade school are especially encouraged to apply.
Scholarships are for one year and previous applicants and past winners are eligible and encouraged to reapply. Funds for the scholarship program come from proceeds from an annual golf tournament held in partnership with New Melle Sports and Rec. The golf tournament is typically held on the first Saturday of August at the Golf Club of Wentzville.
