Apply for a SkiEsta Scholarship
Students, apply for a SkiEsta Scholarship! The owners of SkiEsta will award a minimum of two $1,000 scholarships to area residents who fit into one of the following categories:
1) high school senior that has been accepted and is committed to attending college or pursuing a formal higher education degree;
2) an area resident who is interested in attending The Eddy School in Newry and is identified by it as a need-based student; and
3) any adult who is enrolled in continuing education or change of career training (e.g. training to become a plumber, electrician, or courses to further expertise in a trade).
To apply, please write a simple letter describing the way the funds will be used and discussing why you believe you are the best candidate for the scholarship money. Be sure to include name, mailing address, telephone, and email on your essay. In the case of high school student applicants, please forward your GPA/transcript with your essay. Priority will be given to residents of Newry although anyone in the Sunday River area may apply.
Letters should be sent to The Owners, Ski Esta, 343 E. Hillendale Road, Kennett Square, PA 19348.
The deadline for receiving the application is April 6, 2018. Scholarship winners will be announced at the annual Bethel Area Chamber of Commerce Awards Dinner, May 4, 2018. The owners of SkiEsta donate at least one Awards Celebration ticket to each recipient so that he/she may attend the event.
