The scholarship is open to male and female students who attend a four-year college in Alabama, have a minimum 3.0 GPA and are classified at least as a college sophomore. Applicants must be a citizen and resident of Alabama and an Alabama high school graduate. Financial need is not a consideration.
Scholarship applicants must submit a two-page essay on the following topic: “The most challenging issues facing my generation and how I can make a difference.”
“This scholarship was funded by generous friends, family members and statewide grass-roots contacts who knew and loved Elois. We are thrilled to begin awarding the Elois Zeanah Endowed Scholarship on behalf of the Republican Women of Tuscaloosa County,” said Cynthia Johnson, CFWA’s director of development.
Applications can be found on the CFWA website at thecfwa.org under the scholarship tab. Please remember that all scholarship applications must be postmarked by Oct. 15, 2016, and the recipient of this initial $1,000 scholarship will be notified on December 2, 2016.
