Royal Academy Education is announcing another great leap forward; the formulation of a Scholarship Fund! In honor of the founders, the scholarship fund has been set up in the name of The Donald B. and Shirley M.R. Minster Founders Scholarship.
“This is a 501(c)(3) corporation organized exclusively for the charitable and educational purposes of Royal Academy Education Graduates and their future endeavors”; says Penny Cote, Executive Director. “The financial growth of the scholarship fund, selection standards, and distribution will be administered through the Royal Academy Education Advisory Council”. The Advisory Council will set standards for application, offering guidance to prospective and recent graduates who wish to excel in future endeavors such as:
- Specialized technology/trade education
- Support with apprenticeship opportunities
- A passion to pursuing certain college degrees
“Initial seed money of $5000 by one contributor has made this possible”, says Penny. We are on the hunt to substantially increase this seed for the sake of our grads! In fact, I plan to auction off a beautiful hand made quilt at this years’ graduation ceremonies, June 2, 2017, at 6:00pm.”
