Time is running out for select college students who could be eligible to earn a scholarship in 2015!
March 16 is the deadline to apply for a statewide scholarship available to college juniors and seniors registered to vote and majoring in political science, public administration or business administration, journalism or mass communications at an accredited Florida college.
The Florida State Association of Supervisors of Elections (FSASE), comprised of 66 county supervisors in the State of Florida, will award $1,200 scholarships to three qualified students in 2015.
“I encourage eligible students to take advantage of this opportunity and apply for this scholarship before the deadline,” said Pinellas County Supervisor of Elections Deborah Clark.
The scholarship application and the complete list of scholarship guidelines, which include requirements such as letters of recommendation and financial information, are available for download at VotePinellas.com.
Scholarship applications must be received by 5:00 p.m., Monday, March 16, 2015, and should be submitted in the county in which the student is registered to vote. Students who are registered Pinellas County voters should return completed applications to any of the three Supervisor of Elections offices: 315 Court St., Room 117, Clearwater, 33756; 13001 Starkey Rd., Largo, 33773; or 501 1st Ave. N., St. Petersburg, 33701.
