SUPPORT THIS INDEPENDENT JOURNALISM
The article you’re about to read is from our reporters doing their important work — investigating, researching, and writing their stories. We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources. Today, our business model has been interrupted by the pandemic; the vast majority of our advertisers’ businesses have been impacted. That’s why the SC Times is now turning to you for financial support. Learn more about our new Insider’s program here. Thank you.
San Clemente Area Republican Women Federated is currently accepting applications from local high school seniors interested in receiving scholarships.
The group is looking to award scholarships, ranging between $800 and $1,500, to high school seniors in the San Clemente area.
Applicants, the group notes, must be U.S. citizens, a registered Republican voter (or intent to register, if not 18) and reside and attend schools in Dana Point, Camp Pendleton, Capistrano Beach, Mission Viejo, San Clemente or San Juan Capistrano.
Those applying will also need to provide, prior to April 20, proof of intent to enroll in an accredited institution of higher learning and will also need to be available for an interview with the SCARWF scholarship committee, according to the group.
Completed applications should include a 500- to 700-word essay on “What makes me think I’m a Republican?” It should also include an official high school transcript, resume, photo and three letters of recommendation.
The deadline to apply is April 20. The scholarships will be awarded during the group’s Awards Banquet on Wednesday, June 10, at Talega Golf Club.
