2022 Annual Scholarship Program
Letter to SCA Republican Club Members
Annual Scholarship Program
Dear Sun City Anthem Republican Club Member:
This letter is to inform you about your club’s Scholarship Program, and to ask you to submit referrals on good candidates to receive one of our scholarships. Club members routinely serve as a key component to our candidate recruiting process.
Each year your club raises money for the scholarship program throughout the year and conducts candidate recruiting in September through November. In December, applicants are screened through a process involving personal, academic, and community involvement as determined by review of the submitted applications, two written essays, and personal interviews. The selected recipients receive their scholarship proceeds by the end of the year.
A second document, called "Philosophy" explains in more detail the screening process, and is available upon request.
The funds supporting the Scholarships are raised through a program we call the “50 – 50 Scholarship Raffle”, where at each club meeting, members may purchase raffle tickets, $1 a ticket or $5 for 6 tickets. At the end of the meeting, a drawing is held, and the winner takes home 50% of the day’s proceeds, with the other 50% going into the scholarship fund.
If you would like to receive the full application packet we send out to potential applicants, please let me know. My address is at the bottom of this letter. Or if you have a potential candidate and would prefer me to send the packet to the applicant, please provide me with the full contact information of the applicant, including an email address. Any questions please contact me at the email address below.
If we want the conservative philosophy and the Republican Party to remain a powerful political force in the future, we must bring in young people. This is one of many ways that helps assure this goal can be reached. Thank you in advance for your support and help.
Education and Scholarship Committee Chairperson
