Scholarship Application Deadline Extended To May 7th

April 26, 2017

The CARH Scholarship Foundation has extended the deadline for accepting scholarship applications to May 7, 2017.  If you have not already done so, please contact your on-site property managers to let them know about the CARH Scholarships so that they can encourage their residents to apply immediately!  Click here for a flier that you can email or fax to your properties to help publicize the scholarship program.

The five 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. 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,

There are two types of applications for scholarships (click title to download the application):

  • Application for Traditional Students – This application is for those students/individuals, that 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 – This application is for students/individuals, with a high school diploma or equivalent, who have been out of school for five years or more.

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 at or currently enrolled, as a full-time under-graduate student at an accredited 2- or 4-year college, university or an 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.)

One scholarship has been reserved for a qualified applicant who has been accepted at, or is enrolled in, an accredited vocational or trade school program. All applicants are eligible for the other four scholarships. Applications can also be downloaded from the “Scholarship Foundation” menu option of the CARH website, Applications must be received by the Scholarship Foundation no later than the extended deadline of May 7, 2017.

The scholarship recipients will be presented at a special Awards Breakfast on Wednesday, June 21st during the CARH Annual Meeting and Legislative Conference at the Ritz-Carlton Pentagon City, Arlington, Virginia.
