In order to encourage academic excellence and community responsibility among high school students, Public Housing Authorities Directors Association (PHADA) has implemented a scholarship program for graduating seniors who are preparing to enter college. PHADA will award three scholarships to deserving youth currently a participant with the Housing Authority of Champaign County:  

  • Stephen J. Bollinger Memorial Scholarship ($7,000)
  • Freedom & Civil Rights Scholarship ($5,000)
  • Mutual of America Life Insurance Company Scholarship ($5,000)

The scholarship fund will be administered by the PHADA Scholarship Committee. The money will go directly to the school that the recipient will be attending. The school will deposit the money into the student’s account. The money may only be used to pay for tuition, books, and activities directly related to the student’s education. The application deadline to apply is January 25, 2019. For more information on how to apply, please click the link or contact PHADA directly at: 202-546-5445.
