There may be one Community Service Award of $500 awarded this year to a high school student who has demonstrated a commitment to community service over a period of several years.
Any high school student residing in the City of Elmhurst, Illinois, is eligible even if he/she attends a high school in another city. All completed application forms will be considered for the award as one group and the applicant best meeting the criteria shall be selected.
The applicant shall show evidence of community service/volunteerism for which no pay has been received. Involvement can be limited to one activity or a variety of different activities. Include written recommendations from supervisors or certificates of participation for service activities cited in your application. Do not include activities for which school credit or any other form of compensation is received. Service may be personal – helping a neighbor, communal – cleaning up a trash dump; or national – aiding victims of natural disasters.
Copies of our criteria and applications are available on the websites of the high schools. Application forms are also available by contacting the scholarship chairperson. Completed application forms and any supporting letters from school staff, clergymen, volunteer coordinators, etc. should be sent, preferably by email to firstname.lastname@example.org or by mail to the address below and must be postmarked by March 15th of the current year.
