Dear Adak High School Student,

From our website link, please find a college scholarship application from the Foundation for Rural Service (FRS). Established in 1994, FRS, in cooperation with NTCA—The Rural Broadband Association, seeks to sustain and enhance the quality of life throughout rural America by advancing an understanding of rural telecommunications issues. In keeping with its mission, furthering the education of rural youth is one of the foundation’s primary focuses. Our company, Adak Eagle Enterprises, LLC, is a member of NTCA and is proud to support FRS in this worthy endeavor.

As the local telecommunications service provider, it is our pleasure to offer this national scholarship program to the students in your school. Should a student from our service area be selected to receive one of the 30 scholarships ($2,000 each), we will contribute an additional $500 to the scholarship, bringing the total one-time scholarship award to $2,500. Students may also be eligible for four FRS Staurulakis Family Scholarships valued at $5,000 each or for two TMS Scholarships at $1,500 each. Students who are majoring in math, science, engineering, or medicine are given preference for the FRS Staurulakis Family Scholarships. Additional scholarships include the Everett Kneece Return to Rural America Scholarship, valued at $2,500, and the Colt Ford Scholarship, awarding up to $15,000.

The application is easily reproduced. Please feel free to copy it as needed. Or, if you would prefer, it can also be downloaded from the FRS web site at http://www.frs.org. Completed applications should be sent directly to FRS, postmarked no later than March 2, 2015. Applications postmarked to FRS after this date will NOT be accepted. Please note that each application must bear my signature to be considered eligible.

We are very excited to bring this scholarship opportunity to our local school. Please help us make it a success by taking the opportunity to apply.

Thank you very much.
