Deadline Feb. 1 for OOIDA scholarship applications

| Tuesday, January 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.
