Each year, the Greater Heights Area Chamber of Commerce awards scholarships to outstanding high school seniors in the area. Those students are honored at a luncheon to be held on May 21st. Since the inception of the program, the Chamber has awarded over $350,000 in scholarships to area students. Those scholarships are made possible through generous donations by our members. We are pleased to continue that tradition this year and are currently taking applications for the 2019 scholarship program. This year we are also giving out scholarships for students who will be entering into a vocational training program. Deadline to apply is March 1, 2019. To apply, please read and complete the following applications:
