*Looking for scholarship money for your high school senior?
Consider the Tuskegee Airmen Scholarship Foundation, which grants scholarship awards to deserving young men and women of accredited high schools who carry a grade point average of at least 3.0.
“We look for outstanding students with great GPAs that exemplify leadership and outstanding abilities just like the Airmen did,” says national spokeswoman La Trycee Fowler. “You don’t have to be African American, or a certain gender – just an outstanding person like the Airmen were.”
Forty $1,500.00 awards will be available in 2012. Click here for more information. The deadline to apply is Jan. 14.
