Simon Youth Foundation Extends Community Scholarship Deadline to January 21, 2014

Due to harsh winter conditions felt throughout much of the country
this week, Simon Youth Foundation will extend the Simon Youth Community
Scholarship Deadline to January 21, 2014.  The extension should afford applicants extra
time to pick up scholarship applications from Simon Guest Services Centers and to
secure transcripts or other necessary documentation. The new deadline also will
allow mail delivery to return to normal schedules.
For the 14th straight
year, Simon Youth Foundation, a national nonprofit that creates educational
opportunities, will award college scholarships to students in communities that
are home to Simon properties. Any student who will graduate in the class of
2014 and lives within 50 miles of a Simon property is eligible.
Since the program’s
inception, Simon Youth Foundation has awarded more than $10 million in
scholarships nationwide, and that number promises to grow in 2014 with the new
class of recipients. The program will award one-time scholarships of up to
$1,500 to students who plan to enroll in an accredited college, university,
vocational or technical school. In addition, an “Award of Excellence”
will be given to the top candidate among scholarship winners that represent
each of the nationwide Premium Outlets® locations. “Awards of Excellence” are
$2,500 scholarships that are renewable for up to three years.
Students may obtain scholarship
applications online at http://www.syf.org/our-initiatives/scholarships/community-application/
or by visiting the Guest Services Center
inside each Simon mall, outlet or center.
2014 Simon Youth Community
Scholarship recipients will be selected by Scholarship Management Services, a
third-party administrator. Students are selected based on a variety of
criteria, including financial need, academic performance, leadership skills and
participation in school and community activities. Students who are the first in
their families to pursue a post-secondary education also will be given close
consideration.

The completed application,
along with official school transcripts and parents’ most recent tax form, must
be sent to Scholarship Management Services by Jan. 21, 2014. Questions
regarding the scholarship program should be addressed to:
