Rep. Hatcher announces Legislative Scholarships

By on February 26, 2009

State Rep. Kay Hatcher announced that she will be able to circulate applications for the Illinois General Assembly Scholarship.

“I have received many phone call and e-mails about this program and am delighted we are now able to begin the application process,” she said.

State law dictates scholarship eligibility. Eligible applicants must have already been accepted to a state university and reside within the boundaries of the 50th district, which includes parts of Kane, Kendall and LaSalle counties. You can determine if you live in the 50th district by phoning Hatcher’s district office or by using the “Legislator Lookup” section of the Illinois General Assembly’s website, www.ilga.gov.

A total of eight one-year scholarships will be awarded by Rep. Hatcher’s Scholarship Advisory Committee. Applicants will be reviewed based on academic achievement, financial need and community involvement. The committee will make their decisions no later than June 15, 2009.

The submission deadline is April 24, 2009. For more information or to receive a scholarship application, please call Hatcher’s district office at (630) 553-3223.
