Wyoming high school seniors have the chance to be awarded a $2,500 college scholarship, thanks to the Horatio Alger Association and Rocky Mountain Power Foundation.
Rocky Mountain Power Foundation is partnering with the Horatio Alger Association by sponsoring a total of $125,000 in scholarships to assist Wyoming students in attaining a college education.
Wyoming high school seniors still have time to apply for a scholarship. The Association has extended the enrollment period to May 1, 2007, to allow more students to apply. The Association is seeking to award 50 scholarships to Wyoming applicants. Seniors who previously applied will automatically be considered for the new enrollment period.
Horatio Alger Scholarship Programs are distinctive because they offer assistance to students in need who have persevered despite facing hardships in life. Potential applicants should demonstrate integrity and perseverance in overcoming adversity, strength of character, financial need, a good academic record, commitment to pursue a college education and a desire to contribute to society.
