It’s time to apply: Grants and scholarships
News From Diverse Power
On Oct. 1, Diverse Power makes applications available for community and school grants and scholarships. Applications for all of these are online at diversepower.com or dpfi.org. (See column at left for more information.)
The Diverse Power Foundation will announce recipients of scholarships and school and community grants in mid-April. Grants go to area schools for innovative classroom programs and to nonprofit community agencies for charitable initiatives. Scholarships are awarded to high school seniors who plan to attend technical, two-year or four-year colleges.
Another scholarship opportunity that Diverse Power members may apply for is the Walter Harrison Scholarship, a statewide program that annually awards $1,000 college scholarships to high school seniors.
Typically, Diverse Power sends high school students as delegates on the Washington Youth Tour each June. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 Youth Tour was canceled. Candidates selected for the 2020 weeklong leadership tour will now attend the 2021 virtual program. No new applications will be accepted for the upcoming year.
To apply for community/school grants or scholarships, you may obtain an application online or by visiting Diverse Power offices in LaGrange or Cuthbert.
