Mat-Su Sertoma Club is pleased to announce they are offering one full scholarship to attend a 2018 Summer Camp that provides programs to deaf or hard of hearing youth.
The Summer Camp Scholarship is for any Alaskan deaf or hard of hearing student, ages 13 to 18. The successful winner and Sertoma will determine the location. The Club covers the cost of the camp session and airfare.

To be eligible for this scholarship, a deaf or hard of hearing student must submit an essay of 500 words or less on the topic – “What is important about your identity as a deaf or hard of hearing person in a diverse world?”
Essays are due by November 10, 2017 and should be mailed to the Mat Su Sertoma Club, P. O. Box 874202, Wasilla, AK 99687. The successful winner will be announced by Thanksgiving.
