Helping to create the next generation of Asheville leaders and a driven, multi-talented workforce, the Asheville City Schools Foundation provides a pool of scholarships every year. The more than 20 scholarship funds, totaling over $200,000, are available to any student graduating from an Asheville City Secondary School. Once again, this year Mosaic Community Lifestyle Realty is honored to be a part of the program as a major supporter of the Asheville City Schools Foundation.
Realizing the importance of providing students the opportunity to move on to higher learning and rewarding careers, the foundation has awarded over $2.6 million in new and renewing scholarships to deserving Asheville High School and SILSA graduates since 2000. Last year, approximately 90% of scholarships were awarded to students with significant financial need.
How to Apply
There is one application, available online, for all scholarships. For the 2019 awards, the application window opened Dec. 1, 2018, with all applications due March 6, 2019. Scholarships are awarded based on a range of criteria, including academic excellence, community service, athletic achievement, leadership skills, employment experience, and good character.
Each year, two application review committees comprising five members each are carefully selected from a diverse pool of retired teachers, active community members, college professors, Asheville City Schools administrators and Asheville City Schools Foundation board members. The committee reviews all applications, reads the essays, and interviews the final round of eligible students. Together they choose which students are most aligned with each scholarship.
