The purpose of the Southern Wayne County Regional Chamber Scholarship Program is to assist students from Southern Wayne County communities to pursue a program of undergraduate education.

Scholarship recipients may reapply in each of three additional years, if appropriate.

  • Extra-curricular activities, volunteer involvement in the community, and paid work experience.
