The Chamber of Commerce is offering five $1,000 scholarships to Wilmington students in the class of 2012. The scholarship recipients must be Wilmington residents, but may attend public or private school. Three of the scholarships will be awarded to students pursuing a business degree or attending a post-secondary trade school. One of the scholarships will be awarded in partnership with Security Innovation, Inc., a local company that helps organizations integrate security into their software programs, to a student pursuing a degree in technology or security/law enforcement.
