Six scholarships are awarded to deserving residents of CARH-member affordable rural housing properties. Each scholarship provides $1,500 per semester for educational expenses, with a maximum four years of funding. Additionally, one scholarship has been reserved for a qualified applicant (if any) who has been accepted at or is enrolled in an accredited vocational or trade school program. All applicants are eligible for the other five scholarships.
There are two types of applications for scholarships (click title to download the application):
