Erie County Legislator Kevin Hardwick announces that forms to apply for the Buffalo Chapter of the FBI National Citizens’ Academy Alumni Association scholarship are available through his Legislative Office or at his website. The scholarship application must be postmarked by Friday, May 11, 2012.
“Scholarship opportunities help our young people continue their education and I hope anyone who is eligible will apply,” Legislator Hardwick said. “I have made the scholarship application available on my website or contact my office for a packet.”
The FBINCAAA scholarship was established in the fall of 2006 and is offered to a high school senior in good academic standing who demonstrates leadership, community service and is a good character. The $1,000 award will be payable in two installments of $500 each semester.
Scholarship eligibility is open to high school seniors with a 2.5 (C+) average or better, who will attend a two or four-year college/university in the fall 2012. Applicants must reside in Erie, Monroe or Niagara counties. Applications will be reviewed and the winner will be announced the week of June 11.
The FBINCAAA is a community-based and supported organization, distinct and separate from the FBI, designed to promote a safer community through a process of educating business, media, minority, religious, government and other community leaders.
