2014 ERCA Community Contribution Scholarship
ERCA is a non-profit corporation that awards student scholarships and conducts voluntary surveys of high school and middle school students throughout the United States. ERCA provides a minimum of 25 scholarships per year to deserving high school students. The scholarship awards recognize and reward high school students who have made an extraordinary contribution to their community and/or high school and are not based upon financial need.
The ERCA Community Contribution Scholarship Competition (the “Competition”) is open to all high school students who are legal residents of the United States. Applicants must have recognized a need or problem in their community, have determined a way to address this need or solve this problem, have developed an action plan, and have worked to put the action plan in place so as to address the need or solve the problem. The action plan must be a unique project developed by the student, not a project developed by an established group of which the student is a member.
All applicants under the age of eighteen (18) or minors at the time of application must have the permission of at least one (1) of their parents and/or legal guardians to apply. By applying, applicants
and/or their parents or legal guardians (if such applicants are minors) agree to accept and be bound by all terms of these Official Rules and Regulations ("Official Rules"). Employees (and their immediate families and household members, whether or not related) of Educational Research Center of America, (ERCA), their parent, subsidiary or affiliated entities, advertising or promotion agencies, are not eligible to apply or win.
