Ike Foundation seeking scholarship applicants

Ike Foundation seeking scholarship applicants

The Ike Foundation, founded by Mike and Becky Iaconelli as a way to engage more children in the sport of fishing, is seeking applicants for its college scholarship program, which will provide financial assistance to five qualified high school seniors.

The Ike Foundation Scholarship Dinner, held recently, helped raise more than $15,000 and the foundation is now looking award scholarships to high school seniors pursuing full-time enrollment at a 2-year or 4-year college or university in the United States. Awards will be based on academic achievement, demonstrated volunteer commitment (preferably in the fishing or conservation world), and a personal statement of how fishing has impacted their life and prepared them for college.

Completed and submitted application materials must be postmarked or submitted online before April 1, 2018.

The Foundationís Scholarship Committee conducts a blind review of all applications to determine the final award. Trustees score submissions using a pre-defined point system. Scholarship awards may be applied to tuition, fees, supplies, books, or equipment. All interested applicants should go https://theikefoundation.org/2018-scholarship-application.
