Forakis scholarship deadline extended
The application deadline for the Anthony P. Forakis Scholarship, awarded by the Forakis family and the Modesto “500” Lions Club scholarship committee, has been extended to May 30. The number of scholarships and their amounts vary each year based on the qualified applications, but range from $250 to $1,250 based on the following criteria: musical accomplishments and future goals; overall academic achievement; letters of recommendation; financial need; community service.
Applicants must be age 17 to 24 and Modesto City Schools or charter high school seniors, or graduates attending a college or junior college. They must write an original essay: “Why I should receive a scholarship and how this scholarship will affect my personal development.”
