Applications for two scholarships from the Hancock Parks and Recreation Department are still being accepted, but there is only a week left.
The scholarship was created using the money raised during the 2018 Mendy Souders Run/Walk, which brought in $750.
The two scholarships are $500 and $250 and available to high school seniors who live in Hancock and will be going to college in 2019 in an allied health field.
An allied health field would include athletic training, audiology, dental hygiene, dietetics, radiography, health administrations, speech-language pathology, and others.
The application is available at Hancock High School and also on the Hancock MD Parks and Recreation Facebook page.
The application requires the student’s name, phone number, email, address, graduation, and GPA. There is a letter of recommendation from a faculty member in the school or adult in the community not related to the student.
The application also requires the student to write a 250 to 500-word essay on what allied health field they are pursing and why they’re pursuing that field of study.
Applications must be turned in to Hancock High School Counselor Susan Shultz by Wednesday, May1.
