PORT ORCHARD — Applications are being accepted for the second-annual South Kitsap Community Pride Scholarship, according to the sponsor, South Kitsap Properties.
Doug Miller, the managing broker of the company, said the $2,000 service-oriented scholarship program focuses on the applying student’s plans to make South Kitsap a better place.
Miller said the application, available at www.SouthKitsapPride.com, has a series of questions to be answered, and one of the answers must be completed as a short under-five-minute video submission. The winner of the scholarship last year, Nolan Winn, submitted a video on youth homelessness and the impact that Coffee Oasis has on the community.
South Kitsap Properties is sponsoring the annual scholarship opportunity for graduating seniors from the South Kitsap School District, including those from South Kitsap High School, Discovery Alternative High School and Explorer Academy.
To be eligible, applicants must be attending a school as part of the next step of their education — including, but not limited to, a four-year university, community college or trade school.
“This application focuses on the student’s vision for the future of our community, and what role they will play in making Port Orchard and the greater South Kitsap community a better place to live, work or invest [in],” Miller said.
The scholarship is not income-limited or dependent, and there is no minimum GPA requirement, he added. Applications are due by 5 p.m., April 30.
