JOEY ROBISON SCHOLARSHIP FOR NON-TRADITIONAL STUDENTS GUIDELINES

Altrusa International of St. Augustine, Inc.

Altrusa International of St. Augustine, Inc. is a volunteer service organization that focuses on improving the educational level of citizens of St. Johns County. The Joey Robison Scholarship for Non-Traditional Students was named in memory of the son of Linda Robison, former governor of District Three, Altrusa International. Mrs. Robison is an avid supporter of higher education and believes Altrusa must give a hand up to individuals with not only educational needs but also a desire to change and improve the condition of their lives.

Each Joey Robison Scholarship for Non-Traditional Students assists a student who is a St. Johns County resident and is enrolled in an accredited institution of higher education. Scholarships of $500 each will be awarded to qualified applicants.

An applicant should be:
• a resident of St. Johns County who plans to remain in the area.
• a non-traditional student (out of high school for six or more years) who seeks to upgrade work skills in a tech school or college to seek an undergraduate degree.
