The NACHI Foundation is starting a scholarship program, the program first gift will be given for next falls college start time. At first the initial scholarship will be $500.00. I hope to be able to build this to become several full scholarships over the years.
However, in order to give a $500.00 scholarship the Foundation needs to raise $10,000 in order to have the gift paid out of trust. I have put in the first $1000.00 to get the fund going.
I would like to find out from the membership. There are two options in giving the scholarship. First we could open it up to Children and Grandchildren of NACHI.
Or I could work with scholarshipsearch.com and open it up to any high school senior in the country.
Requirements for the Scholarship besides who we are giving it to are:
High School Senior
Greater then a 3.5 GPA
Acceptance to any accredited 4 year college.
Majoring in either Engineering, Computer Science, Marketing, Architechture, and business (I think that these all have something to do with the HI business).
If I put it through a scholarship search engine. They will help us select the canidate. I am not sure if we should make it need based or not. That is something else that could be decided by the membership.
