Scholarship opportunity for students

Simon Youth Foundation and the South Shore Plaza will award a college scholarship to a student graduating from high school in 2013. Applications are due March 1 for the one-time scholarship of up to $1,400 to a Braintree resident who plans to enroll in a college, university, or a vocational or technical school. Nationwide, the fund last year awarded $1.2 million to 378 students who live in communities with a Simon property. Winners will be selected by Scholarship Management Services and be based on financial need, academic performance, and leadership skills.
