Scholarship opportunity available for community service-minded students

June 11, 2018

 

     Incoming Ashland Community and Technical College freshmen still have time to apply for a scholarship to pay for their first semester’s tuition.
     The Rick Ritchason Memorial Scholarship was created by Build Ashland to honor one of the nonprofit’s members, who died earlier this year, and his commitment to community service.
     To be eligible for the scholarship, the student must be a resident of Boyd or Greenup County, be active in community service, have a GPA of at least 2.5 and plan to attend ACTC.
     In addition to the scholarship application, which can be found on Build Ashland’s website, applicants are also required to submit a typed essay or video documenting their community service involvement.
     The deadline to apply is Aug. 1 and the application can be found at buildashland.org.
