Spring is the time to start thinking about this year’s scholarship nominations. Each year the OAEA is able to provide limited scholarship assistance to deserving applicants.

All applications with enclosures need to be received by the date shown on the application; submissions will be reviewed and decided on by the Scholarship Committee and awards will be made by approximately August 15.

The scholarship program is funded solely by donations from the membership, and total award amounts are based on mutual fund earnings from the scholarship funds. For your convenience, an application is included in this issue of the Explorers Gazette.

To sponsor an applicant, the sponsor needs to be a Life member of the association, or be an Annual member with membership paid up through June 30 of the following year. The sponsor needs to include a statement as per the application. This is the most common omission, and without it, the application may not be reviewed. The application certainly won’t receive as high a ranking as an application with a sponsor’s statement.

Scholarship candidates need to be a graduating high school senior or enrolled and attending college to be eligible. The candidate should submit all pertinent paperwork as outlined on the application.
Send completed application(s) to

OAEA Scholarship Committee Chairman,
3104 Deepspring Drive,
Chesapeake, VA 23321-2448.
