Now is the time to start thinking about the school year 2017-2018 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 7 July 2017; submissions will be reviewed and decided on by the Scholarship Committee and awards made by approximately 1 August.

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 30 June 2019.  The sponsor needs to include a statement as per the application; this is the most common omission, and without it, the application will not be reviewed.

Candidates need to be a graduating high school senior, or enrolled and attending college to be eligible.

The Scholarship Committee is headed by Linda Hamblin [email protected], phone 757-405-3362).  Send applications to OAEA Scholarship Committee Chairman, 3104 Deepspring Drive, Chesapeake, VA  23321-2448.
