Newport County Board of Realtors offers college scholarship

The Newport County Board of Realtors will accept scholarship applications for one $1,000 award to a college-bound student this year.

Eligible candidates must reside in Newport County and will be selected on various criteria, including financial need, academic standing and extracurricular activity.

Applications are available in the guidance offices at area high schools, and online at www.newportrealtor. com. The deadline for submitting a completed application is April 30.

Vicki deAngeli of Island Realty in Jamestown, who serves on the selection committee, said that students must fill out the forms completely.

“We want as many students to be considered as possible,” she said, adding that some past applications were disqualified because of missing information.

The application criteria include, among other things, the submission of a handwritten letter explaining why an applicant should be considered, and a letter of recommendation from a teacher.

The Newport County Board of Realtors has been awarding scholarships to area students for more than 50 years.

Call deAngeli at 742-6793 or email Vicki@IslandRealtyRI.com for more information.
