GMCC Annual School Scholarship

Local funds for Local minds Donate

Empowering local Minds

Each year, the Greater McFarland Chamber of Commerce donates a scholarship to two local High School students to promote higher learning and nurture the beginnings of the business owners of the future. The hard work of our local leaders and business owners make this scholarship possible. To them we say thank you!

Beyond the basics

Our community fully encourages students to strive and achieve their goals, no matter how big the dream may be. This local scholarship, along with other local scholarships help to make those dreams possible. Because a dream shouldn’t have a price tag.

Prerequisites to become eligible to receive the scholarship:

1: Application process

We work directly with our local High School Administration to pool scholarship applications and ensure that the scholarship goes directly to the students who are seeking them for Higher learning purposes.

2: Academics, Personality & Passion

We carefully review each application and use more than just a GPA to determine who is the right candidate for our scholarship. We take into consideration many aspects and realize that a slightly lower GPA doesn’t mean that a student is not trying as hard as another student, but may be due to a lack of educational resources, no student is put out of the candidacy due to sub-prime GPA.

Thank you for selecting me as a recipient of the Greater McFarland Chamber of Commerce Scholarship.  I am so humbled to have been chosen for this award knowing that there were many qualified applicants. Your generous donation of $500 has helped reduce my financial burden, allowing me to focus on my schoolwork and not worry so much about how I’m going to pay for my books and school. I know you guys work hard fundraising for this specific scholarship and some of it even comes out your own pockets, but I would like you guys to know your generous contribution is very well appreciated. I cannot wait until the day I am able to also give back to my community as you have done for me. Once again, thank you for selecting me as a recipient and for your generous donation.
