Reminder: Scholarship Application Deadline – April 30th


April 3, 2015

The CARH Scholarship Foundation is currently accepting applications for the five scholarships offered in 2015.  They must be received no later than April 30, 2015.  The scholarships are the James L. Poehlman, Gordon L. Blackwell, Jack Godin, Jr., CRHD Founders and Scholarship Foundation Scholarships.

The five scholarships are awarded to deserving residents of CARH-member affordable rural housing properties. Each scholarship provides $1,000 per semester for educational expenses, with a maximum four years of funding.  The Foundation will also present $250.00 to the complex manager where there is a scholarship recipient, as well as recognition in CARH publications and on CARH’s website,

Qualified applicants must be a resident of a CARH-member property; a U.S. citizen or permanent legal resident; hold or 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 in an accredited 2- or 4-year college, university or an accredited vocational educational school. A property is considered to be a “CARH-member property” if it is under the management or 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:

  • Application for Traditional Students – Students or individuals who are currently a candidate for high school graduation or within the past five years received a high school diploma (or equivalent); and
  • Application for Non-Traditional Students – Students individuals with a high school diploma or equivalent, who have, or previously had, been out of school for five years or more.

Both the Traditional and Non-Traditional applications will be considered for all five scholarships. Applications can also be downloaded from the “Scholarship Foundation” menu option at

The scholarship recipients will be presented at a special Awards Breakfast on Tuesday, June 16th during the CARH Annual Meeting and Legislative Conference at the Ritz-Carlton Pentagon City, Arlington, Virginia.
