Each year, the City of Meridian awards up to four $1,000 scholarships to Meridian residents who will graduate from high school in the spring and begin attending an accredited college or vocational education program in the fall. These scholarships are funded by the sponsors of the Mayor's State of the City address.
To be eligible in 2014, an applicant must reside in the City of Meridian or its area of impact, or have been a member of the Mayor's Youth Advisory Council since January 2013.
Applicants must be graduating in the spring of 2014, and plan on attending an accredited college or vocational education program beginning in the fall of 2014.
The scholarship is awarded to successful applicants who demonstrate evidence of leadership potential through their community involvement, as well as volunteerism, school activities, or work experience.
