The Trapshooting Hall of Fame recently announced that it will be offering seven scholarships this year. Five of the scholarships will be for $5,000 and the remaining two at $1,000 each. Graduating high school seniors who are active ATA (Amateur Trapshooting Association) members are eligible to apply for these scholarships.
The five $5,000 scholarships will be paid out over four years and the two $1,000 scholarships will be one-time payouts. Those wishing to apply must be enrolled in an accredited college or university as a full-time student. In addition, anyone receiving one of the four-year scholarships must maintain a minimum 2.5 cumulative grade point average (from a scale of 4.0) to maintain eligibility.
As mentioned, applicants must be active members of the Amateur Trapshooting Association and will have to show financial need for a scholarship. Applicants should also be enrolled (or in the process of enrolling) in an accredited college or university as a freshman this fall. Finally, applicants must not have a family relationship with any trustee or officer of the Trapshooting Hall of Fame.
This year’s Trapshooting Hall of Fame scholarship applications must be postmarked by July 1. Send completed applications to: Trapshooting Hall of Fame, P.O. Box 519, Sparta, IL 62286. No email submissions will be accepted.
