The 2021 Scholarship will be in honor of our mother, Bonnie Case, who passed away from COVID-19 in Carson City, Nevada, on Dec. 7, 2020.
The Tiger Drive Scholarship is for a student who is going to a university, college, or trade school and isn’t afraid to look beyond what is familiar in his/her life to reach, learn, and grow. And hopefully, someone who will pay it forward some day in some way.
I am thrilled to offer The Tiger Drive Scholarship for the sixth year, and this year, I’m trying to make it official and file as a non-profit with the State of Nevada. Once I am approved and have tax-exempt status, I will update this page.
I am now accepting applications for students graduating from Carson High School or Pioneer High School in Spring 2021 and attending a college, university, or trade school in Fall 2021.
APPLICATION DUE DATE: The application must be completed and returned to Teri Case via firstname.lastname@example.org or given to the high school’s counseling department no later than – Please check with your school counselor for the annual deadline.
APPLICATION: The application is available in the Carson High School Counseling Department and the Pioneer High School Counseling Department.
SELECTION CRITERIA: The minimum of a $300 scholarship will be based on an applicant’s financial need, academic performance, work experience, extracurricular activities, and education plans. Only Carson High School or Pioneer High School students in Carson City, Nevada, graduating in the Spring of 2021 with a GPA of 3.0 or higher and attending a trade school, college or university full-time in the Fall of 2021 will be considered. Special consideration will be extended to students who live on Tiger Drive in Carson City, Nevada. This is a one-time award.
DONATIONS: The past several years, I was overwhelmed in all the right ways by unexpected donations from kind-hearted friends and strangers. I am super excited to announce that a portion of the proceeds of my novels, Tiger Drive and In the Doghouse: A Couple’s Breakup from Their Dog’s Point of View will help fund the Tiger Drive Scholarship! However, many have asked if they can contribute, so I am officially applying for a Nevada nonprofit license (along with the necessary federal paperwork) in the hopes that your future donations will be tax-deductible.
So there are four ways you can contribute to the scholarship if you’d like to, but keep in mind that until I receive approval as a nonprofit, it may not be tax-deductible. I will keep this page updated or you can subscribe at the bottom of this page to stay updated on my filing status. For now:
- Purchase my novel Tiger Drive. Tell others about the novel. A portion of the proceeds helps fund the scholarship.
- Purchase my novel In the Doghouse: A Couple’s Breakup from Their Dog’s Point of View. Tell others about the novel. A portion of the proceeds helps fund the scholarship.
