8TH GRADE SCHOLARS
PBA 8th Grade Scholarship 2021 - Due April 14, 2021
The PASADENA BUSINESS ASSOCIATION offers AWARDS to selected 8th graders who attend either Northeast or Chesapeake High Schools, or live in the attendance area for these schools but attend another public or private school. The 8th grade scholarship process is intended to teach students the importance of community involvement and academic achievement. Typically, the scholarship committees consider financial need, academics, and community involvement. This scholarship committee will take into account that during the Covid pandemic, students may not have been able to be involved in community activities in a traditional way or at all over the last year.
ELIGIBILITY REQUIREMENTS - Applicants must be enrolled in an 8th grade public or private school in the Northeast or Chesapeake district or live in the attendance areas for these schools (if they attend another public or private school such as the OMHS IB Middle Years Program, for example). Students must have an average grade point average of 3.75 on a 4.0 scale in English, Reading, Language Arts, Math, Science, and Social Studies for the quarter or trimester and demonstrate positive behavior as reflected on the report card comments or grades. Applicants should possess humanitarian qualities in school and the community through responsible actions and involvement in school programs and/or community service above and beyond what is required.
NOTIFICATION OF AWARDS - School counselors will be notified of the names of the winners at their school. Award recipients will be honored at a PBA general membership luncheon meeting on June 2, 2021 at 12:00pm. In May, parents/guardians will be notified by mail. Family members may attend the scholarship luncheon at a cost of $20 per person with advance reservations. Please note that only recipients of the award will be notified.
