New Scholarship Program Announced

The Hoover Chamber of Commerce Scholarship Program has been revised, and scholarship applications are now available at the chamber website at www.hooverchamber.org or at the chamber office.

With over $200,000.00 awarded by the Hoover Chamber in scholarship over the past several years, we hope to have additional scholarship funds available in an ever-increasing amount for the next several years.

Students may apply through the chamber website or pick up an application at the chamber office. The Chamber set up a 501(c) (3) Foundation for scholarship last year, and tax-deductible contributions can be made at any time. Scholarships can be awarded in the name of an individual, a family, or a business for a contribution of $2,500.00 or more.

Plans are to award scholarships at levels of up to $4,000.00 in the future. This will be a larger amount than we have ever awarded in the past, but a lower number of scholarships is expected to be awarded for the next year or two. There is a deadline of Friday, March 10, 2017 for the applications to be completed and turned in to the Chamber office. Recipients of the Hoover Chamber Scholarships will be notified by April 28, 2017 and should attend the May 18, 2017 chamber luncheon as our guests.
