Scholarship opportunity available for local students

For the 14th consecutive year, Simon Youth Foundation, a national nonprofit that provides educational opportunities for at-risk high school students, will award a college scholarship to one student from every community that is home to a Simon property, including Gwinnett County, which is home to two Simon properties.

Simon Youth Foundation Community Scholarships are awarded through the Simon Youth Scholarships program and in partnership with local Simon properties. The application period is open through Saturday, Jan. 11.

Students can pick up a copy of a scholarship application at the Simon Guest Services Center at Mall of Georgia and Sugarloaf Mills. Applications can also be downloaded at the SYF website at www.syf.org/our-initiatives/scholarships/community-application.

Any student who will be graduating in the class of 2014 and lives within 50 miles of a Simon property is eligible. The program will award a one-time scholarship of up to $1,500 to students who plan to enroll in an accredited college, university, vocational or technical school.
