NEWPORT — The Jay Focus Group recently announced scholarship opportunities for 2019.
The group’s “Community Service Scholarship” provides funding up to $500 to high school seniors from Orleans County to assist with educational costs of continuing their education.
The scholarship requires previous community service involvement, and the deadline for applying is April 19.
The winner will be announced on May 3.
In addition, the group’s 6th Annual “Summer Camp Program” sends students from Orleans County to a summer camp for a week. The program aims to help create a memory that will last a lifetime.
Applications and a brief description from each student must be submitted to the Jay Focus Group Summer Camp Program no later than April 25.
A decision on Summer Camp Program awardees will be made by May 1.
This program is open to kindergarten through Grade 12 as of July 1, 2019.
Summer Camp choices include Raised Jay Peak Summer Day Camp, Hazen’s Notch Summer Camp in Montgomery, Green Mountain Conservation Camp at Buck Lake, in Woodbury, Siskin Ecological Adventures/Coutts – Moriarty Summer Camp at Lake Salem, in Derby, and Circus Smirkus 2019 Summer Camps.
The members of the Jay Focus Group realize the cost of transportation for camp may be a burden to some families and they have voted to reimburse the cost of gas to those families providing an itemized expense form with original receipts.
