Dahlonega Staff Council Staff Scholarship Application

About the Dahlonega Staff Council Employee Scholarship

The Dahlonega Staff Council Employee Scholarship Fund was created to provide financial support to qualified applicants who are pursuing a degree or certification that helps them realize their long-term career goals.

It is funded by tax-deductible contributions from donors, fundraising events sponsored by the Dahlonega Staff Council, and by special appropriations from the Dahlonega Staff Council budget. Award amounts may vary by applicant.

In the event that the Staff Council Employee Scholarship Fund balance reaches the Foundation’s then current minimum for the endowed funds, then current Staff Council leadership should be encouraged to enter into a standard trust agreement with the Foundation to manage the fund as an endowment, with only the available interest from the fund to be used for scholarship awards.

Dahlonega Staff Council Employee Scholarship Committee

The Dahlonega Staff Council Employee Scholarship Committee will establish and publish the application schedule for Fall and Spring Semester scholarship awards.

The Committee will review properly submitted applications and make the final selection of scholarship recipients for the semester. They will be responsible for requesting the approved scholarship amount from available funds, from the Foundation in a timely fashion.

Members of the Staff Council Employee Scholarship Committee or their dependents will be ineligible to receive the scholarship while they are serving on the committee.
