Established in August, 2007, the scholarship fund was created in memory of Steven J. Landez, former President of the Roswell Hispano Chamber of Commerce. The purpose of this scholarship is to provide students with the opportunity for higher education. This scholarship represents one way RHCC is carrying on the traditions that Steven Landez advocated in all that he did: “caring for our fellow man and striving to improve the community in which we live.” With a quiet, caring, strength, he showed by example that with commitment and determination, you can create and motivate an entire community. All of the programs created during his tenure as a board member and as President of the Roswell Hispano Chamber of Commerce gave opportunity for all.
This scholarship is for students pursuing careers in the business and/or technology fields who have completed at least one semester from an accredited college or university with a 3.0 GPA or higher, and who are residents of Chaves County. Applicants are required to submit a certified copy of their most recent transcript, the application form, 3 letters of recommendation (not family), and a 1/2 to 1 page summary indicating career goals, community service performed (non-profit groups, work, church) to the Roswell Hispano Chamber of Commerce at 327 N. Main Street, Roswell. Scholarship(s) of $500.00 will be awarded for the FALL Semester of that year.
Scholarships will be made payable to the university of recipient's choice. Employees and Staff members of the Hispano Chamber of Commerce are NOT eligible to apply for these scholarships.
