Every Fort Bend Mayor to award a $1,000 Strength in the Future Scholarship

CentralFordBendChamberThe Central Fort Bend Chamber’s 2014 Fort Bend Strong Gala will celebrate the educational institutions that make Fort Bend County one of the fastest growing counties in the country.

The highlight of that celebration will be the 18, $1,000 scholarships the Fort Bend County Mayors will present to Fort Bend County students scheduled to graduate in 2015.

One scholarship will be awarded to a student from each of the 18 cities or villages in Fort Bend County. All class of 2015 graduates, whether they attend public, private or home schools, are eligible to apply for the scholarship.

Each applicant will write an essay on, “What makes your city, town or village unique to Fort Bend County? What do you see as a challenge for your community and how might you work to resolve it?”

The mayor of the city or village in which the applicant lives will decide the winning essay. The scholarships will be presented at the 2014 Fort Bend Strong Gala, Nov. 6 at Safari Texas Ranch.
