     We are inviting High School Seniors who are an ALSA member to apply for one of two scholarships from the ALSA Youth Scholarship Fund.  These scholarships will be awarded in May and recognized again at the ALSA Grand National Championship Show held each October.  If you are interested in applying, please fill in the application form and give responses to all the questions on a separate sheet of paper.  You need to pay close attention to the requirements and directions for this scholarship.  The application must be postmarked no later than March 15th of this year.

Please Become A Sponsor 
See what your small donation does for our youth!

    As many of you may already know, this scholarship is funded by donations.  ALSA gives out two scholarships every year to two ALSA youth members. 
     As time goes on, donations are unfortunately declining.  We need to receive donations annually from you, the llama community, if this is going to be an ongoing award.  Otherwise we will not be able to continue with this valuable program.
     We encourage you to become a sponsor of this program this year.  Please email the ALSA office for information on how to make a donation to this program.  All donations, regardless of size, are greatly appreciated.
