GCASA Foundation announces scholarship
Written by WBTA STAFF on February 16, 2018
Genesee/Orleans Council on Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Foundation will award two $1,000 scholarships, one to a Genesee County student and one to an Orleans County student.
GCASA Foundation supports the work of GCASA and other non-profit organizations in Genesee and Orleans Counties. Several organizations have received mini-grants to help sustain the crucial work they do in our community. Now, individuals pursuing a degree in health sciences or human services can apply for scholarship money that will help them pay for college.
The board of directors of both GCASA and GCASA Foundation are committed to providing quality services. Educated, skilled employees and board members are the necessary for effective service delivery. GCASA Foundation Board President Brian Paris states, “GCASA is excited to once again be providing scholarship funding to Genesee and Orleans County residents. We are dedicated to supporting our mission and this creates a strong alignment in this regard. It is our goal to produce positive community change and we understand this begins with the commitment and education of future generations.” GCASA Foundation has been pleased to honor some exceptional students in the past.
Individuals whose primary residence is in Orleans or Genesee County and who have been accepted at an accredited college in an eligible program such as social work, nursing, health science or human services are encouraged to apply. Scholarship criteria and applications are available in high school counseling offices throughout both counties and on-line by visiting www.gcasa.net.
