2017 CCA Scholarship Awards Now Being Accepted!

Deadline, June 4th, 2017

 

            The Charlotte Community Association is once again pleased to announce that it is now taking applications for two scholarship awards: The Edward Watson Award and the CCA Award.

The CCA award, for $1,000, is offered by the Charlotte Community Association and is funded by donations and various fundraising activities. Last  year’s recipients were Nicholas Lyons, son of Veronica and Russ Lyons of Lake Ave and Jonathan Geisy, son of Jade and Jonathan Geisy of Beach Ave.

The Edward Watson Award is a $2,000 award in memory of Edward Watson, a Charlotte resident, and former student of Charlotte School. This award is funded from donations provided by the Lakeside Presbyterian Church.

The criteria for both scholarships are the same. The college bound senior must reside in the Charlotte neighborhood or attend the Leadership Academy for Young Men (formerly Charlotte High School).

For many years the Charlotte Community Association has offered scholarships to students who qualify based on academics, community service and extra-curricular activities. We are pleased to continue this tradition as well as start a new one with the Edward Watson Scholarship.

Applications will be available for both scholarships at the Charlotte Branch Library and online at the CCA website (charlottecca.org). Applicants are welcome, and encouraged, to apply for both awards.
