STC Memorial Scholarship
Every year, Sacramento Tall Club gives out scholarships to qualified and talented High School Seniors who meet the tall club height requirements (at least 5’10” for women and 6’2″ for men.) The scholarship award is dedicated in memoriam of former members who have passed on who were big supporters of these young scholars and their many talents and merits, including being tall. Part of the application for the scholarship for each young person is to write an essay titled “What being tall means to me.” To see photos of our current and past winners plus copies of their essays, continue reading below.

Some tips on completing your Scholarship Application
It states several times that the application must be typed. It WILL be disqualified if it is hand written. This only applies to the first two pages of the application.
If you want to know whether or not your application has been received, you MUST send in a self addressed stamped envelope. We will not answer any requests via email to whether we have received it or not.
SAVE YOUR MONEY: Your application must be postmarked by March 1, 2016 to be eligible. Sending it Express or Priority is not necessary. Also putting it in a folder or notebook does not win you extra points. It just gives us a supply for the coming year!
Your application MUST come in complete. Partial apps will not be accepted.
If you send your application “Signature Required” it WILL be returned.
Please don’t staple your packet together. Simply use a jumbo paper clip to hold them together.
Pictures should be a good headshot. Senior pics are best. Do NOT write on your picture. Simply put your picture in an envelope and put your name on the outside of the envelope.
ABOVE ALL REMEMBER THAT THIS AN ACADEMIC SCHOLARSHIP FOR TALL YOUNG ADULTS. YOUR GRADES AND TEST SCORES ARE VERY IMPORTANT. JUST BEING TALL DOES NOT QUALIFY YOU.
