2019 HRP Scholarship Program
The Houston Relocation Professionals is a non-profit organization that brings together corporations and relocation service providers in and around Houston for the primary purpose of providing educational information and current industry updates to its members. As part of our commitment to Relocation, HRP has developed a scholarship program for current high school seniors who have relocated into the greater Houston area sometime between grades 9 (after 8th grade graduation) and 12. The one-time award of $2,500.00 will be presented to two Houston Metropolitan area accredited high school seniors this year (Aldine, Alief, Channelview, Clear Creek, Conroe, Crosby, Cypress-Fairbanks, Deer Park, Fort Bend, Galena Park, Goose Creek, Houston, Huffman, Humble, Katy, Klein, Lamar, La Porte, Magnolia, North Forest, New Caney, Pearland, Pasadena, Sheldon, Spring, Spring Branch, Stafford, Tomball and Waller ISD accredited high schools). The award will be sent to the college that the student will be attending to assist with tuition, etc.
The HRP will select scholarship winners based on the strength of their total package. The student will be evaluated on academic performance, extra-curricular activities, and on their response to an essay addressing the challenges associated with relocating to a new area and a new high school.
Applicants must meet these requirements:
We must receive all applications by Feb 15, 2019 to have time to evaluate them and make a selection. The scholarships will be awarded on March 15, 2019.
One Finalist will be submitted to Worldwide ERC for potential additional award!
Please submit the following information along with your completed application to your Guidance Department:
1) Please list (on a separate sheet) all your extra-curricular activities and work experience during high school (after 8th grade).
2) Please write an essay addressing the following:
Tell us about your experiences associated with your relocation into the Houston area. Please feel free to discuss your family background, challenges encountered with the relocation, and successes achieved. We would also appreciate any advice you would give to another teenager preparing to relocate (as you did)!
The essay should be between 1,000 to 1,500 words. The winners will be asked to present their essays at an upcoming HRP meeting, or via video presentation.
Thank you for your interest and for participating in this program, and good luck!
