As a committed member of the Austin community, the Austin Relocation Council (ARC) is proud to offer our annual scholarship program for current high school seniors who have relocated into the Austin area. We believe in the importance of providing educational assistance for exceptional students in the Austin area, and our ARC Scholarship Program is a way to support and recognize the achievements of high school seniors who have overcome the challenges associated with relocating to a new area and a new high school.
The program evaluates applicants based on their academic performance, extra-curricular activities, and their response to an essay prompt that asks about their experience handling the challenges associated with relocation. The winner of this scholarship will receive a one-time award of $3,000, which will be sent directly to the college or trade school that the winning applicant will be attending to assist with tuition and related expenses. The winner will also be notified of the award and may be invited to participate in a presentation ceremony of the scholarship.
To be eligible for the scholarship, applicants must be a current high school senior in good standing in an Austin area public school, who has relocated within the last 24 months, more than 50 miles, and changed schools due to their family's relocation. The applicant must have a current cumulative GPA of 3.0 on a scale of 4.0 or equivalent achievement on a different scale. Please note that only one scholarship of $3,000 will be awarded to one Austin Metropolitan area senior. The deadline for the scholarship application is March 3, 2023.
At the Austin Relocation Council (ARC), we take pride in our commitment to providing educational assistance to high school seniors in the Austin area. We firmly believe that investing in the education of our community's future leaders is essential to promoting growth and progress in our society. To ensure that any interested and qualified student has the opportunity to apply, we strongly encourage all eligible applicants to review and complete the scholarship documents linked below. Additionally, we have distributed the same documents to the counseling departments of Austin area high schools to ensure that all eligible students have access to the scholarship information. We are eager to receive applications from eligible students for the ARC Scholarship Program and are excited to support the next generation of exceptional leaders in our community. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us, and we will be happy to provide assistance.
