The Santa Clarita Valley Chamber of Commerce is now taking applications from Santa Clarita Valley veterans or an immediate family member who is pursuing higher education at a Southern California college or university.

The Ian Gelig Memorial Scholarship program is named in honor of fallen local veteran Sgt. Ian T.D. Gelig, an Army paratrooper who was killed in Afghanistan in March 2010. The scholarship is designed to honor all veterans by providing a $500 scholarship per semester, or $1,000 annually.

Information on eligibility, selection criteria, the application process and the application form can be found on the SCV Chamber website at

Scholarships are intended to be used for this year’s fall semester and are renewable for up to eight semesters if the awardee maintains at least a 2.0 GPA and provides proof of continued registration.

The application deadline is March 2 and the winner or winners will be announced on March 30. For details, call the chamber at (661) 702-6977.
