The SCC said in a statement yesterday that it gave the scholarship awards to students who display academic excellence, extracurricular success, leadership force, and volunteerism. It did not indicate the amounts awarded to each student.

“The SCC Education and Workforce Development Committee is committed to this annual tradition to support students by defraying the cost of pursuing their postsecondary education, thus improving our local workforce, and solving issues impacting our community,” the statement said. “We would like to thank the community scholars for their hardworking efforts of submitting their applications and documents to our office.”

Scholarship awardees apply for the grants and are selected by the SCC Education and Workforce Development Committee.

This Scholarship Program is made possible through proceeds of the Saipan Chamber of Commerce 2022 Annual Scholarship Golf Tournament. (Saipan Tribune)
