Holiday blues? Bored during Winter Break? Spring Branch ISD seniors might be advised to apply for area scholarships. They can earn thousands of “free” dollars for college and university years ahead just like the scholarship detailed below.
CAT® Lift Trucks, the Houston-based manufacturer of work duty lift trucks, will soon award a $5,000 scholarship to a Spring Branch ISD senior to be applied to a higher education degree in the state of Texas. Deadline for SBISD applications is soon approaching – 5 p.m. on Friday, Jan. 23, 2015.
The scholarship will be awarded to a district senior who majors in engineering or a business-related field.
The Cat Lift Truck announcement was made Oct. 28 during the company’s 11th annual scholarship program call. Since the Cat Lift Trucks Scholarship Program began, more than $90,000 has been awarded to students in the Houston area.
“Our annual scholarship program is designed to support talented students with their educational pursuits, making it more affordable for them to receive a higher education” said Kent Eudy, executive vice president of sales and marketing at Cat Lift Trucks.
Applicants for this scholarship must plan to attend an accredited college, university or technical school within Texas in the fall of 2015 and major in engineering or in a business-related field.
Students from public schools within SBISD are eligible to apply. Recipients will be chosen based on academic record, financial need, leadership, honors, narrative responses and participation in school and community activities.
