As announced originally in a broadcast e-mail dated February 25th, the CARH Scholarship Foundation is currently accepting applications for the 2014 James L. Poehlman, Gordon L. Blackwell, Jack Godin, Jr. and CRHD Founders Scholarships. Applications are due by Wednesday, April 30, 2014. Please ensure that all qualified students residing at CARH-member properties are aware of this deadline!

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; 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 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.)

There are two types of applications for scholarships:

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.

Both the Traditional and Non-Traditional applications will be considered for all 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 Wednesday, April 30, 2014.

We hope to have a record number of applicants this year, nationwide! Please take the time to inform all of your on-site property managers and residents of CARH-member properties about these scholarships.

This is the 9th year that the Scholarship Foundation has awarded scholarships. This year's recipients will be presented at a special Awards Breakfast on Tuesday, June 10th in conjunction with CARH's Annual Meeting and Legislative Conference.
