Leadership Franklin is now offering a $1,500 scholarship for qualifying high school seniors and current college students.
The nonprofit organization will award one scholarship to a student who meets the scholarship criteria.
Applicants must have a minimum 3.25 cumulative grade point average to be considered. A copy of the student’s transcript, a 500-word essay, and letter of recommendation are part of the application requirement.
Scholarships are awarded based on a scoring process of scholarship application points: a combination of the strength and quality of the essay, school extra-curricular activities including sports and community outreach, and grade point average.
Applications are due March 14, 2019. Applications may be obtained online at www.leadershipfranklin.com.
