I'd now like to tell you a little bit about our organization. The Friends of 440 Scholarship Fund is a charitable organization that grants scholarship funds to deserving kids whose parents are involved in the workers’ compensation system as, for example, lawyers or legal assistants, insurance adjusters, medical personnel who treat workers’ compensation patients, and, of course, injured workers. Our scholarship is available to kids who have the talent, the financial need, and the necessary connection to the workers’ compensation system. High school seniors must have a 2.7 GPA to apply and scholarship recipients must maintain a cumulative 3.0 GPA and have at least 12 credit hours per semester, in order to remain eligible for funds.
AS PREVIOUSLY NOTED, APPLICATIONS FOR SCHOLARSHIPS MUST BE RECEIVED BY TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 28, 2017. THE APPLICATION IS ON OUR WEBSITE AT: WWW.440SCHOLARSHIP.ORG.
Would you please let your fellow guidance counselors and students know that this scholarship is available. If you or the scholarship applicant have any questions whatsoever, please either call me on my cell at (904) 728-2582, or send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also contact the executive secretary of our organization who is Lori Gerson. Ms. Gerson's phone number is (305) 423-8710 and her email is: email@example.com .
