Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Scholarship – Nomination and Selection Process

The Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Scholarship is to be awarded to a student who exemplifies the life and spirit of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.  The recipient can be a person of any age, seeking post-high school education or training to better themselves, their family, and their community.  Academic excellence is not a prerequisite. 

For 2018, the scholarship will be a grant of $500.  One, or perhaps two scholarships will be awarded.

The recipient(s) will be chosen from a group of persons nominated by members of this community, using the attached nomination form.  All nomination forms will be reviewed by a Scholarship Committee.  The most promising nominees will be invited to meet with the Scholarship Committee to discuss their situations and educational plans.  Following the interviews, the Scholarship Committee will select the scholarship recipient(s).  The schedule for the steps in this process is as follows:
