New Melle Chamber of Commerce Scholarship Deadline March 31

The New Melle Chamber of Commerce is currently accepting applications for scholarships for the 2019-2020 school year. Four scholarships of $1000 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 only. 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 Recreation in August. (This year’s tournament will be August 5, 2019 at the Golf Club of Wentzville.)

Applications will be available at the Boone’s Trail Branch Library in New Melle, local high school guidance offices, and online at www.newmellechamber.com starting February 1, 2019.
