Deadline: April 15th, 2014
The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Scholarship was established in 1997 to honor the memory of Dr. King’s life and work and to preserve the legacy of the nonviolent civil rights movement. This scholarship is offered through TAUM (Troy Area United Ministries) and is intended for low to moderate-income high school seniors or adults who have completed a GED and are seeking to further their educations. To apply you must have been a resident of Rensselaer County and of the City of Troy for at least one year.
Scholarships will be awarded based on financial need, desire to implement goals of Dr. King, promise of academic success, and evidence of service to school, community, and/or religious organization. The deadline for application is April 15, 2014. Finalists will be expected to take part in an interview with Committee members – this will be an important determining factor in the award.
To apply, submit the completed scholarship application, most recent grade transcripts, and a recommendation from school official or community leader to:
