Homenetmen SF Chapter Scholarship

Homenetmen SF Chapter announces a new scholarship program for its college students, based on service to the chapter and other sister organizations. In order to encourage and acknowledge dedicated community service by our youth, the chapter will begin this program by awarding the two most qualified applicants $1,000 each towards expenses of attending an accredited four year university, pursuing an undergraduate degree.

Applicants will be judged based on dedicated and sustained membership and service to Homenetmen, other community service within our sister organizations, and overall exhibiting Homenetmen values in society, in everyday life.

This program will be administered by a scholarship committee. They will also be responsible for fund-raising, though the chapter will subsidize. If community members are encouraged by this program, the committee is seeking sponsors. They can be reached at scholarship.sf@homenetmen.org
