Chamber Offers Scholarships
The Greater Rochester Chamber of Commerce provides $500 or more in scholarship(s) to eligible students graduating from high school.
Students eligible for the Greater Rochester Chamber of Commerce scholarship must be graduating seniors in high school who are either employed by or have a parent employed by a company that is a member of the Greater Rochester Chamber of Commerce.
The recipients are selected in April and are awarded in June at their school’s scholarship ceremony/graduation. The scholarship awarded will be payable to the institution the student attends in their second year of attending a full-time college, university or technical school.
Scholarship guidelines and applications are available at high schools in the region, at the Chamber office located at 18 South Main Street in Rochester, NH. The deadline to submit the completed scholarship application is March 31.
Chamber member businesses are also provided the opportunity to be named a Chamber Scholarship Champion by becoming a $100 donor to benefit the Chamber Scholarship Fund. This fund enables the Chamber to be able to provide scholarships annually to graduating high school seniors. For more information on becoming a Chamber Scholarship Champion, call the Chamber office at 603-332-5080 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
