Roberts’ high school program extends scholarship deadline

Roberts Wesleyan College has extended its deadline to March 31 for scholarship applications to a summer college experience camp for high school students.

The college is offering 35 scholarships to students who qualify for the free-or-reduced-lunch program at their schools and have a grade point average of 2.5 or above. The scholarships are funded by the John F. Wegman Fund of the Rochester Area Community Foundation, Roberts’ board of trustees and individual donors.

The sleepaway camp, July 30-Aug. 3, allows high school students to choose a focus on nursing, pre-med, crime scene investigation, social justice or worship. Students who will be entering their sophomore, junior or senior year in high school in the fall are the target audience. The deadline for non-scholarship students who want to attend the camp is July 13. Tuition is $395.

Applications for the scholarships are available online.
