Target Invites Applications for All-Around Scholarship Program
Deadline: November 1 each year
Each year, the Target Corporation awards more than six hundred $1,000 all-around scholarships each year -- including one $25,000 scholarship to a high school senior and college student aged 24 or younger. The scholarships recognize volunteer work as well as academic achievement.
High school seniors, high school graduates, and current undergraduate college students (age 24 and under) who are legal U.S. residents are eligible to apply. Applicants must enroll in a full-time undergraduate course of study at an accredited two- or four-year college, university, or vocational/technical school in the U.S. no later than the fall term. The program is not offered in Alaska, Hawaii, Puerto Rico, or outside the U.S.
The Citizens' Scholarship Foundation of America will select recipients based on number of community volunteer service hours; volunteer leadership awards and honors; appraisal form completed by volunteer supervisor or leader; essay on volunteer service; and grade point average of 2.0 or higher (C average).
