The Scholarship Foundation is providing four scholarships to deserving residents of CARH-member affordable rural housing properties. Each scholarship will be $1,000 per semester for educational expenses, with a maximum four years of funding. In addition, the Foundation will present to the managers of complexes where there is a successful scholarship recipient, $250 plus recognition in CARH's publications and website!

Qualified applicants must be a resident of a CARH-member property; a U.S. citizen or permanent legal resident; 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 a vocational educational school. (Please note, a property is considered to be a "CARH-member property" if it is under the management/ownership of a national CARH member and the annual Property Training & Education Fee has been paid for that property.)

There are two types of applications for scholarships:
