The application for The Ride for Change minority scholarship is now available for all graduating, minority senior high school students in the Abilene area.

The inaugural event for The Ride for Change took us to 11 different cities in Texas and Oklahoma while raising awareness, and donations, for minority scholarships we've created in each town.

We chose to offer minority scholarships, as our inaugural endeavor, due to the fact that there's a massive disparity, in financial assistance, between minorities and non-minorities.

Thanks to the many, generous donors, we now have our set scholarship amount for the Abilene area, while the other markets are establishing scholarships for their own.

Best of all, we're offering, not one, but two scholarships. Each in the amount of $1075. So, if you're about to finish high school, and enter college or trade school, then you'll want to apply for one of these scholarships.

While grades do play a part, community involvement is a major component for receiving this scholarship. So, simply download this application, fill it out, and get it back to us by March 31st to be considered. We'll announce the two local winners in April.
