Better late than never, scholarship applicants to the Point Roberts chapter of Dollars For Scholars were notified of their awards September 23.
“Everything was online,” said chapter board member Linda Hughes. “There was a significant increase in the programming responsibilities from the local organization’s side,” which caused delays. The chapter recently rejoined the national organization, which does application, review and notification through its website at pointroberts.dollarsforscholars.org.
The goal was and continues to be to notify applicants in June, Hughes said. “Hopefully all those glitches have been worked out and we’ll be much more streamlined next year.”
