PLATINUM TORCH NATIONAL SERVICE ANNOUNCES SCHOLARSHIP
Platinum Torch National Service Honorary, a national non-profit organization that recognizes high school and college students’ community service involvement, announces the availability of three $500 scholarships for the 2009-2010 academic year. Platinum Torch is the only national non-profit organization that honors students solely based on outstanding community service involvement. Unlike other scholarships that recognize students based on academic excellence and athletic achievement, Platinum Torch awards scholarships to students who perform the most verified community service hours each academic year.
High school seniors and college students applying for the scholarships must first register as a member with Platinum Torch by logging on to the Web site at www.platinumtorch.org. Verifiable community service hours performed between July 1, 2009 – May 1, 2010 will be applicable to the scholarship application that can be downloaded from the Web site. All applications must be postmarked by May 8, 2010.
Platinum Torch provides all scholarship winners and members with an official Community Service Transcript to include with college admission, scholarship provider, or employment applications. Depending on the level of service students attain, they will receive a certificate, and a service level pin or National Fellow honorary plaque.
Platinum Torch chapters are created at the high school and college levels, allowing members to participate in a new and dynamic movement to promote the life changing importance of community service. New high school chapters require a minimum of five members and college chapters must have at least 10 members. All chapters require a designated faculty or staff advisor.
We hope you share this information with your students and find value in developing lifelong patterns of volunteerism in young leaders. For more information about Platinum Torch please visit www.platinumtorch.org or contact our Executive Director, Susan Puder at (866) 841-9134, ext. 1016.
