ABA Scholarship Program

Each year the Ashland Business Association (ABA) provides scholarships for Ashland high school seniors who exemplify community and business spirit, work ethic, and creativity.  Last year, the ABA granted two $1,500 scholarships. We want to offer you an opportunity to contribute to this worthy program, and hopefully expand upon it.  The deadline to contribute is May 11, 2018.

The ABA scholarship competition is open to any high school senior residing in Ashland, as long as he or she is graduating in 2018 and has been accepted to an accredited school for further education.  CLICK HERE for an APPLICATION.
