June 21, 2018-With the end of the school year approaching, Hammond Mayor Thomas M. McDermott, Jr. would like to remind all returning college students and high school seniors to apply for the College Bound Scholarship Program. This Program provides eligible students with up to $10,500 per year toward tuition at the accredited college or university of their choice located in Indiana.
The deadline for the College Bound Application is Friday, July 6, 2018. Returning students will need to complete an application, provide proof of homestead, FAFSA filing and school transcripts. New students will need to complete an application, provide proof of homestead and date home was purchased, letter of acceptance to college/university, FAFSA filing, school transcripts, and SAT/ACT score.
All returning and new students are required to perform 40 hours of community service each year. Failure to perform community service hours may result in loss of scholarship and repayment of said scholarship. All community service hours are scheduled through the College Bound office.
Applications can be found at the student’s high school guidance counselor’s office or online at collegebound.gohammond.com. Again, the deadline for applying for College Bound is Friday, July 6, 2018, and all applications must be in the College Bound office no later than July 6th.
If you have any questions, please contact Sharon Daniels, College Bound Coordinator at 219-853-6503.
