EYA, the development team behind the Chancellor’s Row development reached out to us to help spread the word about a scholarship program they are providing for Ward 5 high school seniors. The Scholarship will award $2,000 a year for four years (yes, that’s $8,000) to eligible applicants. The deadline for the application is Monday June 3rd, sorry for the short notice. Here is the qualification criteria for eligible applicants:
