Cambria-Friesland Area Chamber Scholarship
The Cambria-Friesland Area Chamber of Commerce is committed to promoting higher education for students in our communities. Not enough can be said about the importance of retaining our young people in our area. Their familiarity with the local culture and their personal connections with members of the community, both young and old, become valuable assets for integrating and supporting the needs of others.
Likewise, upon returning, these students bring fresh ideas with unique skill sets to improve and incorporate into their profession. The CFA Chamber believes that scholarship opportunities are a valuable means of providing financial assistance when it is most needed for area students as they aspire to become professionals in a wide variety of educational fields.
Application for this scholarship should be
mailed or emailed no later than May 1, 2021.
