2017 MARC Scholarship Program
The Metro Atlanta Relocation Council (MARC) is proud to announce our seventh annual MARC Scholarship Program for current high school seniors who have relocated into the Atlanta area over the course of their high school career.
The student must have relocated more than 50 miles sometime between grades 9 (after completion of 8th grade) and 12 and changed schools due to their family's relocation. Residence eligibility is defined as a senior attending a private or public school in any city or county district within the 15-County Greater Atlanta area. The applicant must also have a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.0 on a scale of 4.0 (or equivalent achievement on a different scale).
Students will be evaluated on academic performance, extra-curricular activities, and on their response to an essay addressing the way they handled the challenges associated with relocating to a new area and a new high school.
A one-time award of $1,500 will be sent directly to the college that the winning applicant will be attending to assist with tuition, etc.). Completed Applications (which must include the essay, application, and score transcripts from the counselor's office) must be received no later than 5:00 pm on Friday, February 24, 2017 (no exceptions please). The winner will be cordially invited, along with their parent(s), to join us in person at our April MARC meeting, at which time we will have a chance to meet them, discuss their experience, and formally award them their scholarship.
Any interested and qualified student should be directed to two important documents,which documents have been provided to the Counselors' office of their high school:
