JeanDean RIF 2017 Scholarship  

It is with great excitement that we are opening applications for the second year for a scholarship available to all former "RIF kids" in Alabama who are high school graduates and plan to go on to higher education opportunities in the Fall of 2017.

The Board of the Alabama Kiwanis Foundation, Inc. has made the funds available for a $500 scholarship to be awarded to a deserving young Alabamian who received RIF books from the Jean Dean RIF Program.

All applications must be received by May 12, 2017, and the winner will be announced by May 19, 2017. All applicants will receive notice of the winner. The awarding of the scholarship this year is in honor of the 26th year of Jean Dean Reading Is Fundamental, signature service project of the Alabama Kiwanis Foundation, Inc.
  
Please make every effort to make this opportunity available to the Jean Dean RIF/Kiwanis “kids” in your local areas who could benefit from this scholarship assistance.
