MARC Announces a New Scholarship Fund
Thanks to the Metro Atlanta Relocation Council (MARC), high school seniors can now apply for a $1,500 college scholarship. This award goes to senior students in the counties of Cobb, Fulton, DeKalb and Gwinnett who relocated to the area sometime between grades 9 and 12. Based on the student's relocation, grades, extra-curricular activities and a written essay, the scholarship is a one-time award. To be considered for the award, high schoolers must currently be a senior with good standing at an Atlanta-area high school, have relocated more than 50 miles between grades 9 and 12, and currently have a cumulative GPA of 2.5 on a 4.0 scale. The scholarship is also open to any student in a county bordering the four listed counties. The application deadline is March 31. Winners will be announced April 20. For more information about the scholarship, contact Rob Kreiling, community outreach/scholarship committee chair: (941) 723-2377, or visit www.marcatlanta.org.
MARC is a non-profit organization that brings together the corporate and service industry relocation professionals for the sharing of knowledge and relocation practices in order to better serve relocating employees.
