Chamber announces ATHENA Scholarship for local high school seniors
The Greater Fort Wayne Chamber of Commerce, in conjunction with the ATHENA International Award Committee, is pleased to announce the 2012 ATHENA Scholarship for the Fort Wayne area.
In 2006, the ATHENA Scholarship was founded with a generous contribution from Dr. Michele Helfgott of Northeast OB/GYN. In the spirit of the ATHENA Award, the ATHENA Scholarship honors young women who have excelled in their academic careers while demonstrating leadership potential and a commitment to their community.
This scholarship is open to young women graduating with the high school class of 2012 who plan to pursue higher education in the state of Indiana. The ideal recipient will be a high achiever in academics who demonstrates leadership in her school and community.
The scholarships of $1,000 will be awarded at the eighth Annual ATHENA Award luncheon on Wednesday, March 14, 2012, in the Diamond Room at Ceruti’s Summit Park.
The deadline for the scholarship application is 5 p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 22. The Chamber encourages all eligible students to apply.
