MetroPCS LLC, the presenting sponsor of the 2012 SNY Invitational, has established a scholarship program to assist high school students from the New York City metropolitan area who plan to continue their education. The MetroPCS Leaders and Scholars Program rewards high school students who excel in the classroom, are involved in volunteer activities, and give back to their community. MetroPCS calls the program the Leaders and Scholars Program because in addition to helping students in New York go to college, we also want to motivate students to become involved in their community.
Applicants for these scholarships must be high school students in grades 11 and 12 with a cumulative GPA of 2.75 or higher on a 4.0 scale (or its equivalent). Scholarship recipients are selected on the basis of past academic performance, future leadership potential in school, community services/activities, work experience, statement of career and educational aspirations and goals, unusual personal or family circumstances, and an essay. For a full list of requirements, guidelines and to print out the application, visit www.snyinvitational.com.
Scholarships of $2,500 each will be awarded to four students at each high school whose basketball team is participating in the 2011 SNY Invitational. These scholarships could be used for current secondary school expenses or future first-year undergraduate study.
Another four $2,500 scholarships will be awarded to other high school students in the New York Tri-State area (for a list of eligible counties go to www.snyinvitational.com.) These scholarships are for students who, upon graduation from high school, plan to enroll in full time undergraduate study at an accredited two year or four year college, university or vocational-technical school and can be used for current secondary school expenses.
Interested students must complete an application (including essay) and mail it along with a current, complete transcript of grades to Scholarship Management Services® postmarked no later than November 30.
Grade reports are not acceptable. All applicants from designated high schools (St. Raymond High School for Boys, Benjamin Cardozo High School, Thomas Jefferson High School and St. Anthony High School) will receive acknowledgment of receipt of their application. Additional applicants from non-designated tournament schools will receive acknowledgment of receipt of their application only if their application was one of the first 800 received. Official scholarship forms are available in a downloadable format and accessible by clicking through to snyinvitational.com.
Applicants are responsible for gathering and submitting all necessary information in one envelope. Applications are evaluated on the information supplied; therefore, answer all questions as completely as possible. Incomplete applications will not be evaluated. All information received is considered confidential and is reviewed only by Scholarship Management Services®.
