The Cory Golis/Anchor House Foundation Scholarship Fund
Purpose of the Program
The Cory Golis/Anchor House Scholarship Fund is awarded yearly to one or more graduating high school seniors or recent graduates. The purpose of the scholarship fund is to provide financial support and encouragement to students entering a 2- or 4-year college or university, technical or trade schools. In awarding scholarships, the selection committee gives priority to students who are planning a career in the fields of counseling, theology, or teaching. Academic achievement, participation in extracurricular activities, financial need, and the ability of the applicant to overcome personal hardships are all taken in to consideration when applicants are chosen for scholarships. The applicant must fill out an application, which includes a personal statement, and two letters of recommendation. The program, also gives gives priority to, but is certainly not limited to, the following:
- People who have been clients of Anchor House or any of its programs.
- People who have volunteered at Anchor House or any of its programs.
- Individuals recommended by the Anchor House management or staff
- Individuals recommended by the selection committee.
Aid may be granted to a candidate for more than one year based upon continued eligibility.
The scholarship committee is composed of members of the Anchor House committee, management, and staff, one or more members of the Golis family, and anyone else accepted by the committee as a volunteer.
Proceeds for distribution are from the previous year’s interest and dividends; it is the committee’s desire not to use the principal.
