The Claremore Area Chamber of Commerce is offering its annual Chamber Leadership Scholarship to local students seeking financial assistance with higher education. The scholarships are awarded in $500 increments to Claremore area students and adults to help further their educational goals. The Chamber is pleased to be able to invest in the future quality of life for our citizens and community.
High school students and graduates in the 74017, 74018, and 74019 zip codes, or residents within the zip codes currently enrolled in an Oklahoma college or university are eligible for this opportunity. Additionally, career tech/trade school students of any age within the designated zip codes who do not quality for the 13th year program are encouraged to apply.
Applications can be obtained through area high school counselors, the Rogers State University admissions office, Northeast Tech – Claremore, the Chamber office, or online at Claremore.org.
Scholarships are not based solely on academic performance, but also by demonstration of special talents, leadership, and community service. Secondary criteria for selection will be financial need, overall grade point average, and career goals.
“After such a challenging year, we are extra thankful for our generous sponsors for continuing to donate for this great cause,” said Barby Myers, Chamber President/CEO. “Nothing is more important than education and the success of the next generation of students.”
This year’s Scholarship Sponsors are Baker Hughes, Melton Sales, and Oklahoma Natural Gas. Scholarship Partners are BancFirst, CIEDA, RCB Bank, and The Seifried Group.
Winners are selected anonymously by the Chamber’s scholarship selection committee. The deadline for applications is April 30, 2021. For more information, please call the Chamber at 918-341-2818 or email Chamber@Claremore.org.
