Frankfort Township Scholarship Applications Must Be Recieved by March 25, 2011

FRANKFORT, ILLINOIS (March 9, 2011):  The Frankfort Township Republican Organization (FTRO) is offering two scholarships to graduating seniors at Lincoln-Way North and Lincoln-Way East High Schools for 2011.  This scholarship is offered every year by the FTRO and was spearheaded and implemented by the efforts of Ray Rossi, former Frankfort Mayor and newly-elected Will County 5th Subcircuit Judge  who served as a member of the FTRO.

In order to qualify for the scholarship, the applicant must be a resident of Frankfort Township and be accepted into an accredited trade school, college or university by the Fall of 2011.   Applicants to the scholarship will need to fill out a simple application form, obtainable at their high school, and submit a short essay by March 25, 2011 to the Frankfort Township Republican Organization and mail it to 20821 Briarwood Lane, Mokena, IL 60448.

The scholarship applicants will be determined by a panel of judges.  Scholarship winners of both high schools will each receive a check payable to the trade school, college or university in which he/she chooses to attend.

The FTRO is proud to advance these scholarship opportunities to local high school students, and to adopt the FTRO’s ideal, in support of Ray Rossi’s intent, to promote a better community and government by providing further higher education to our own upcoming graduates.
