Each year, the city of Meridian awards up to four $1,000 scholarships funded by sponsors and attendees of the Mayor’s State of the City address. The scholarships are for Meridian area high school students.

Eligible applicants must live in Meridian or its area of impact, or have been a member of the Mayor’s Youth Advisory Council since January 2016. Applicants must be spring 2017 graduates and plan to attend an accredited college or vocational education program in the fall.

Scholarships are awarded to applicants who show leadership potential through their community involvement, along with volunteerism, school activities or work experience.

Applicants who have completed an Alive at 25 Safe Driving Course and include their course completion certificate with their application material will be given additional consideration. Information about the Alive at 25 Course can be found online at aliveat25.us.

Scholarship application forms are available at meridiancity.org/scholarships, in the counseling offices of area high schools and in the Mayor’s Office at Meridian City Hall, 33 E.
