This year, the Chatham Area Chamber of Commerce has increased its scholarship awards to provide assistance to three high school seniors who live in the Ball-Chatham School District and attend a public high school. Qualified applicants can earn a $1000 academic scholarship made payable to their college or university of choice. Applications are judged on a combination of academic achievement, volunteer work experience and future goals. The goal of the Chamber is to promote academic achievement and business within the community. Students interested in applying for a Chatham Area Chamber of Commerce Scholarship may call the Chamber office or click here to download an application. Deadline for applications to be received at the Chamber office is Wednesday, May 1, 2013.
