COLUMBIA, MO – [01/18/2021] – This spring, the Shelter Insurance Foundation will award a $2,000 scholarship to each of three graduates of Highland High School. Shelter Agent Bobby Woods sponsors and partially funds these scholarships.
A committee of Highland High School officials and local community leaders will select the recipients. The committee will consider each applicant’s scholastic achievements, educational goals, citizenship, moral character, and participation and leadership in school and community activities. The scholarship is given without regard to race, disability, religion, national origin or gender of applicants. The name of the recipients will be announced at the close of the school year.
The students may apply the scholarship funds toward tuition, fees, or campus housing for any course of study beginning the fall after the recipients’ high school graduation and leading to an academic degree at any accredited college or university. The Foundation makes payment directly to the school each recipient selects.
Applications and additional information about the Shelter Foundation Scholarship will be available in January and should be completed and returned to the school official serving on the selection committee by March 31st. For more information, interested seniors should contact their high school counselor or principal or Shelter Insurance Agent Bobby Woods.
