Sonlight's goal is to provide the best Christian homeschool curriculum materials and service. We are privileged to offer scholarships for homeschoolers entering college or a university. Eligibility for college scholarships is one of the many benefits of being a Club Member.
Now is the time to apply for your Scholarship for college classes beginning the Fall of 2016
Sonlight Curriculum, Ltd.'s charitable foundation is sponsoring a competition for thirteen scholarships: one $5,000 ($20,000 total), four $2,500 ($10,000 total, each), and eight $1,000 ($4,000 total, each) annual four-year scholarships for students who intend to begin college in the Fall of 2016.
To be eligible for a scholarship award for students beginning college in 2016, we will require candidates to have purchased and used five (5) full Sonlight Curriculum Core programs (may include Core or Full-Grade packages or, from previous years, CorePlus™, CoreUltra™, "Basic," "First-Time" or Newcomer packages), all purchased in 2000 or later.
We encourage you to contact us in September or after to verify eligibility, as this may save you considerable time and avoid unnecessary aggravation. You may either send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or call 303-730-6292 and ask for the scholarship coordinator.
(Green or Blue) You may apply to meet either set, but not both.
