Deadline Feb. 1 for OOIDA scholarship applications

| 1/18/2011

During these rocky economic times, many high school seniors and their parents are worried about how they will pay for their college education or trade school expenses.

The OOIDA-Mary Johnston Scholarship committee was established 12 years ago to help the children, grandchildren and legal dependents of dues-paying OOIDA members achieve their goals of furthering their education.  

However, those planning to apply for a scholarship for the 2011-2012 school year have only two more weeks to submit their scholarship applications, which must be postmarked by Tuesday, Feb. 1. The committee awards one first-place scholarship for $2,000 and four $1,000 awards that can be renewed for up to four years.

For more information or to have an application packet mailed out, contact OOIDA?s Membership Department at 800-444-5791.
