The Denton County Republican Party will award two $500 scholarships to Denton County students this summer.
According to the group, scholarships will be awarded to students meeting the following requirements:
1. Either an entering Fall 2010 freshman or current student at a Texas institution of higher education;
2. Fulltime student taking 12 or more semester hours if in college;
3. Must be a registered voter, or if not of voting age, must show active GOP involvement.
“Our goal is to recognize two hard working, ambitious, exemplary young people with these scholarships,” said GOP chairman Dianne Edmondson.
Now in its fifth year, previous recipients include students attending the University of North Texas, Texas Christian University, Dallas Baptist University, North Central Texas College, and Rice University.
Applications are available at the Denton GOP website at www.dentongop.org.
All applications must be received by May 3, 2010, and must be accompanied by a current transcript copy or admission letter if entering freshman, resume, and at least one letter of recommendation.
Scholarship Award recipients will be announced at the July 22 Denton County Republican Executive Committee meeting.
