United Way of St. Charles awards six $750 scholarships to high school or GED graduates at the end of each school year to help defray the cost of educational expenses. In addition, two ROTC students receive a onetime award of $250.
The LIVE UNITED Scholarships are designed to recognize individuals who help make a positive impact in the community. Awards will be based on the applicant’s demonstrated commitment to community service and the extent to which the applicant has impacted the community through leadership and service. The LIVE UNITED scholarships are not a need or academic based scholarship.
To qualify, applicants must be residents of St. Charles Parish and plan to attend a post-secondary accredited degreed or certified program in Louisiana. An educational facility in another state is acceptable if a program desired by the applicant is not available in Louisiana.
Applications for the LIVE UNITED Scholarships are available at Hahnville and Destrehan High Schools. Applications can also be picked up from the United Way of St. Charles office, 13207 River Road in Luling.
Applications must be submitted by mail or presented in person to the United Way of St. Charles office by March 17, 2017.
