Scholarship available to 4-H members
Jan. 22, 2013 — Applications for up to five $5,000 college scholarships are now available at the Lassen County 4-H Office located at 707 Nevada St. in Susanville. The scholarships have been made possible due to a $75,000 donation from Mark and Jessie Milano and the Milano Foundation.
The Milano Scholarship is intended to benefit youth enrolled in the Lassen, Modoc or Siskiyou County 4-H Youth Development Programs for a minimum of four years. Youth with less than four years of 4-H membership may apply but will not be given full consideration.
“Youth learn the skills they need to become successful adults through the 4-H Program. Among these are leadership, citizenship, and community service,” said Mark Milano. “Jessie and I are pleased to offer these scholarships to recognize deserving youth for their outstanding achievement in 4-H.”
The balance of the Milano Foundation’s generous donation will be placed in an endowment fund to allow for the award of additional scholarships in the future.
Applicants for the Milano Scholarship must be seniors who are graduating in 2013 and are attending high school or being home-schooled in Lassen, Modoc or Siskiyou County. Applicants must plan to attend a two- or four-year college or university in the fall and demonstrate good moral character, leadership, citizenship and academic achievement.
One $5,000 scholarship will be awarded to a qualified and deserving candidate in each county. Two additional $5,000 scholarships could be awarded to Modoc County youth depending on the number of outstanding applicants.
Completed applications are due in the 4-H office by 5 p.m., Thursday, April 11.
