Scholarships

High school students, check out the $25,000 in merit-based college scholarships to be awarded this spring by The Clothes Less Traveled!

 

Clothes Less Traveled has awarded college scholarships annually, since 1997.  If you have volunteered at Clothes Less Traveled you are eligible for a scholarship!

Clothes Less Traveled grants up to $25,000 in college scholarships each year, with individual one-time scholarships valued up to $7,500. Postmark deadline for all required application materials is April 7th.

Eligibility:

  • Applicant must be a graduating high school senior from any accredited public, private or home school.
  • Applicant must be a resident of the local area served by Clothes Less Traveled: the South Metro Atlanta Counties of Fayette, Coweta, Clayton, Spalding and South Fulton Cities of College Park, East Point, Fairburn, Hapeville, Palmetto and Union City.
  • A minimum of 40 hours volunteered at Clothes Less Traveled is required to be eligible for the scholarship.  Extra credit will be given by the scholarship committee for additional hours volunteered.  Volunteer hours may be accumulated at any time during the high school career.
  • Scholarships awarded by the Clothes Less Traveled Board of Directors are merit-based and will be determined by the applicants academic achievement, as well as by extracurricular and community involvement and by the applicant’s demonstrated commitment to voluntary service.  Contact our volunteer coordinator at Volunteer@ClothesLessTraveled.org to get started.
  • Scholarships must be used at a U.S. institution.

A complete list of eligibility requirements and instructions for completing the form are on the Scholarship Application itself. Please note that although you may apply online, there is additional documentation that must be mailed to Clothes Less Traveled, to include official SAT and/or ACT score reports as well as information from your school’s guidance office and a letter of recommendation.  Please note: a print out of student’s test scores from the College Board website does not meet the application requirements for SAT/ACT scores.  All application materials must be postmarked by April 7th.

If you have further questions, please contact the Scholarships and Internships Coordinator at CLTScholarshipsandInternships@gmail.com.

We look forward to seeing you as a volunteer at The Clothes Less Traveled—and as one of our next college scholarship recipients!
