Members-Only: Submit Resident Applications for 2017 Ralph E. Biggs Scholarship

The AHAIN Scholarship Committee is now accepting applications for the 2017 Ralph E. Biggs Scholarship.

The Scholarship Committee is providing this scholarship to a deserving resident of an AHAIN Property Member. The scholarship will be $1,500 per year (or $750 per semester) for educational expenses, with a maximum four years of funding.

Traditional and Non-traditional students of an AHAIN member-property in good standing must be a U.S. citizen or permanent legal resident; hold or be a candidate for a high school diploma or equivalent; demonstrate scholastic or work achievement; demonstrate financial need; and be accepted, or currently enrolled, as a full-time student at an accredited 2- or 4-year college, university or an vocational educational school.

   Traditional Students – This application is for those students/individuals, that are currently a candidate for high school graduation or within the past five years received a high school diploma (or equivalent); and

   Non-Traditional Students – This application is for students/individuals, with a high school diploma or equivalent, who have been out of school for five years or more.

Applications must be received by the Scholarship Committee no later than April 13, 2017.

On-site property managers play integral roles in the lives of residents who live in affordable housing complexes. Due to the efforts of these managers, residents have been encouraged to submit scholarship applications in the past. As recognition of this work, AHAIN will present to the manager of the successful scholarship recipient, $250 plus recognition in several AHAIN publications and on the AHAIN website!

   Use this flyer, which can be posted in property common areas or distributed to residents, to inform your locations about this opportunity!
