Berkshire County Arc Accepting Scholarship Applications
Berkshire County Arc announces its 2014 scholarship award program for high school seniors pursuing undergraduate education in the field of human services. 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 and 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 up to the scholarship maximum of $1,500. The awards are made possible through fundraising efforts including Berkshire County Arc’s Annual Golf Classic. Applications are available through area high school guidance offices or by contacting the Berkshire County Arc office at 413-499-4241. The application deadline is March 21.
