Berkshire County Arc Scholarships
Berkshire County Arc and the Berkshire County Arc Down Syndrome Family Group announce their 2016 scholarship award program. High school seniors pursuing undergraduate education in the field of human services are eligible to apply, and students pursing degree programs including psychology, social work, special education, rehabilitation counseling and related courses of study will be given consideration. The selection of award winners will be based upon prior involvement in volunteer or paid activities with individuals with disabilities, the potential to contribute to the field of human services and academic achievement. An independent panel of community members will select the winners and determine the amount of each award. The awards are made possible through fundraising efforts. Applications are available through area high school guidance offices or by contacting the Berkshire County Arc office at 413-499-4241, extension 244. The application deadline is Friday, March 18.
