EYA announces its 2014 college scholarship contest for District of Columbia public & charter high school seniors living in Ward 5. This June the company will award a $2,000 annual scholarship to up to two students based on an evaluation of short essays and recommendations.
Interested students are encouraged to submit an application as soon as possible. To qualify, a student must:
· Be a senior at a DC Public or Public Charter High School
· Reside in Ward 5
· Have accepted admission to either a 2-year or 4-year college (by the June 6, 2014 application deadline)
· Have a GPA that ranks in the top 30% of their class
While homebuilding is the primary thing we do, building sustainable neighborhoods is what we love. And that means more than welcoming new homeowners – it means giving back in the communities where we build. This scholarship will make a direct and positive impact on two young people and their families living in Ward 5, the site of EYA’s Chancellor’s Row townhouse neighborhood now selling in Northeast DC.
