Applications are now available for the 2021 Saipan Chamber of Commerce Educational Scholarship Program. The SCC Education and Workforce Development Committee is committed to this annual tradition to support students by defraying a portion of the cost of pursuing their postsecondary education, thus improving our local workforce and solving issues impacting our community.
This year, SCC is awarding $10,000 to students who display academic excellence, extracurricular success, leadership force, and volunteerism, pursuing careers needed in our workforce to solve problems related to the CNMI. All awards will be distributed to the following categories:
The Chamber Education Award is for Saipan, Tinian, Rota high school graduates or ongoing college residents seeking higher education at the Northern Marianas College, Saipan.
The Pellegrino Vocational Education Award is for Saipan residents seeking further training at vocational trades institutions on or off-island.
The Innovation Award is for Saipan residents seeking education in STEM (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) or business-related fields in an off-island institution.
Applicants should complete the relevant award application based on their eligibility. Once the application is submitted, the judging process occurs in three parts: Application Review, Essay Judging, and the Final Interview. Scholarship judges are members of the SCC Education and Workforce Development Committee.
A complete list of eligibility and requirements is outlined in the official SCC Scholarship Application on our website, www.saipanchamber.com/scholarship-program. Hard copies can be made available upon request.
