Scholarship for Graduates
The 2018 Round Up Scholarship is open for entries from seniors who graduated from a Catron County high school this year.
To enter, apply by sending a letter on "What will life for my grandchildren be like?" Applicants will be judged by the Cielito Lindo Ranch board on the creativity shown in the letter and the clarity of the wording. Letter should be between 250 and 500 words. Send in your letter on the topic stated above, along with a short bio with your name and a mention of future plans for how you plan to apply the scholarship to your future. Plans for college, trade schools or apprentices are all valid uses for the scholarship.
Applications must be emailed or mailed with a post- mark that is dated no later than August 15, 2017. Email email@example.com m or mail applications to The Catron Courier, HC 32 Box 726, Quemado NM 87829. The winning letter will be printed in the August edition of the Catron Courier, and the scholarship will be awarded before September 1, 2017.
To date, a total of $554 has been donated for this scholarship. If no winner is chosen in 2018, the scholarship fund will roll over to the next year (to 2019).
All donations for the Round Up fund come from Catron Courier readers—and we thank you for your generosity. Anyone making a donation may also request a receipt for their taxes.
