If you attend school in Natchitoches, Sabine, DeSoto and Red River parishes you are eligible to apply for the CP-Tel Scholarship at Northwestern State University. 

CP-Tel established the scholarship a decade ago with preference to graduates from Lakeview, Pleasant Hill, Mansfield, St. Mary's, Natchitoches Central, Many and Central Grand Cane high schools whose parents, grandparents or legal guardians are CP-Tel customers or work for a business that is a CP-Tel customer. 

Eligible students must graduate with a high school cumulative grade point average of 2.5 or higher and must maintain a 2.5 cumulative GPA throughout college.  The $1,000 scholarship is awarded to a freshman for a 4-year duration.

For more information, you can contact Kelly Kay by calling (318) 357-4248.  Applications can also be mailed to CP-Tel, Attn:  Scholarship Committee, 5909 Hwy. 1 Bypass, Natchitoches, LA  71457. 

The deadline to apply for the scholarship is May 31.
