The New Melle Chamber of Commerce issues scholarships each year to students living within the New Melle Fire Protection District. The scholarship is open to students attending an accredited trade school, vocational/technical school, community college or college/university.
Applicants must maintain at least a 2.5 GPA, and be enrolled as a full time student. Students pursuing a technical/vocational/trade school are especially encouraged to apply.
Scholarships are for one year only. Previous applicants and past winners are eligible and encouraged to reapply. Funds for the scholarship program come from proceeds from an annual golf tournament held in partnership with New Melle Sports and Recreation in August. (This year’s tournament will be August 4, 2018 at the Golf Club of Wentzville. Please come out and support the tournament if you can.)
Each year, applications are available starting in February usually, and are due by March 31. Applications are typically available at the Boone’s Trail Branch Library in New Melle, local high school guidance offices, and online at www.newmellechamber.com.
