KENNESAW, Ga. – The April 15 tax deadline is also the deadline for application to the Yamaha Scholars Program, which provides children or grandchildren of full-line authorized Yamaha Outboard dealers and employees $3,000 scholarships for college or trade school, the company said recently.
Applications must be postmarked by April 15 in order to be considered. Information and guidelines are found in the Yamaha Dealer Marketing Manual.
Four scholarships are awarded each year. 2005 is the first year the program has allowed grandchildren to apply for the scholarships.
The Scholars Program, now in its 20th year, helps dealership families continue their student’s education by rewarding those who excel in academics, leadership and extracurricular activities. A committee of educators screens applicants for selection.
