The Gila Valley Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) is offering a $500 and $250 scholarship to a student of any grade level attending one of the high schools in Duncan, Safford, Thatcher or Pima and taking EAC dual enrollment, general education classes. This also applies to home-schooled students at the high school level. The money from the scholarship can be used to offset expenses for books and tuition.
Since part of DAR’s mission is to promote an understanding of American heritage in today’s young people, the awarding of this scholarship will be based on the submission of a short, patriotic essay by August 27. With the deadline being only a few weeks after school starts, applicants are encouraged to work on their essays during the summer.
For further information and updated guidelines for the essay, contact DAR Chapter Regent, Bonnie Briscoe at 928-428-5904, DAR chapter members or any high school guidance counselor in the school districts listed above.
