WE CELEBRATE…Student-Volunteers

As a non-profit organization dedicated to serving the community and staffed entirely with volunteers, SUMMERFEST is proud to offer scholarships to graduating seniors, college freshman entering their sophomore year, or junior college students transferring to a 4 year college or trade school who recognize the importance of volunteering and serving in their community.

Each year Summerfest awards up to three (3) scholarships to acknowledge students who exemplify what it means to volunteer and serve within their community.  Eligible students may use the awarded scholarship for their full-time attendance at a 4 year college or university, junior college, or trade school.  Applicants are required to write a 1000 word  essay describing how volunteerism has made an impact on their community and how their own experiences volunteering and serving their community has influenced how they view the world. Letters of recommendation are also required.
