Greenwood Civic Club Scholarship Program

As part of its support for the education and development of students who are residents of Elk, the Greenwood Civic Club is pleased to announce its Scholarship Award program for 2018.  These awards are based on scholastic achievement that has resulted in the student’s acceptance and enrollment into an accredited institution of higher learning or continuing education.  The Club will also consider making awards to candidates who have previously graduated, are making progress in their programs, are enrolling in a graduate program, or to graduates who do not reside in Elk but have close ties to the community either by a history of community support or by employment.  Click here to review the details of the Scholarship Award Program.  Applications are available at Mendocino High School or by clicking here.
