The Maumelle Newcomers Club is once again offering a $1,000 Scholarship award to a resident of Maumelle as well as any immediate family member of a Maumelle Newcomers Club member. Applicants must have at least a 2.5 cumulative grade average and will not be the recipient of a full scholarship. This Scholarship is available to those attending a 4-year or 2-year accredited educational institution or an accredited technical college.  Graduate and part-time students are also eligible.   

Applications must be postmarked no later than April 19, 2019 and are available at the Maumelle Public Library, Jess Odom Community Center or by calling Scholarship Chairperson, Monica Ball at 501-803-0393. Please leave a message.

Applications are reviewed by members of the Maumelle Newcomers Club. Selection criteria for the award include academic achievement, extracurricular activities, leadership potential, and personal recommendations. All identifying data is guarded so that the review panel is not influenced by personal association with the applicant. 

One of the goals of the Maumelle Newcomers Club is to support the education of a Maumelle resident. To this end, this annual Scholarship has been in place for over 20 years and is funded entirely through donations from the members of the Maumelle Newcomers Club. 

The recipient of this year’s Scholarship will be recognized at the May coffee & business meeting on May 3. The 2018 recipient of the Scholarship was Caroline Elliott. She is currently doing well at Belmont University in Nashville, TN.      

The Maumelle Newcomers Club is a social, charitable, and educational organization designed to provide a way for women in Maumelle to meet others and gather together for various activities of their choice. You do not have to be new to Maumelle! The Club meets at the Maumelle Community Center on the first Friday of each month at 10 AM for coffee, snacks and a short meeting. For more information please call Barbara Wright at 851-2126 or Sheila Young at 851-4280.
