Contributed by Robby Showalter

The Kiwanis Club of St. Bernard – Arabi and The Spirit of St. Bernard Foundation have set deadline dates for receiving applications for their annual scholarship programs. Two of the scholarships, the Kiwanis Club – John Richard Bienvenu Key Club Scholarship (Scholarship Application Due April 15, 2022) and The Spirit of St. Bernard Foundation Scholarship (Application Due April 15, 2022) are awarded for four years with a total value of $4,800. The Dean Scholarship Application is due April 15, 2022. Five 4-year scholarships will be awarded with a total value of $15,000 each. Additionally, a one-year scholarship valued at $1,200 will be awarded by Gulf Coast Bank & Trust in coordination with the Kiwanis Club-John Bienvenu Key Club Scholarship. 

High school students who will graduate this spring and who have resided in St. Bernard Parish for the past three years are eligible to apply for the Kiwanis Club and Spirit of St. Bernard Foundation scholarships. However, as per the criteria established by the Kiwanis Club of St. Bernard – Arabi in 1995, eligibility for John Richard Bienvenu and Gulf Coast Bank & Trust Scholarships is restricted to members of Key Clubs that are sponsored by the Kiwanis Club. 

To qualify for the Dean Scholarships, the student has to graduate in the spring and has to either reside in St. Bernard Parish and/or the East Bank of Plaquemine Parish for the past three years.

Academic and/or community service requirements have been defined for these scholarships. To obtain applications for these scholarships, students are advised to see either their high school counselors or visit the Kiwanis website at: www.StBernardKiwanis.org

Michael Chutz, President of The Spirit of St. Bernard Foundation said, “The awarding of these scholarships is a definite action that exemplifies our Foundation Mission Statement which is ‘to seek opportunities for community relationships and to lift up our youth.” 

The late, Dr. Ralph Dauterive, who was a founding member of the Kiwanis Club of St. Bernard – Arabi and The Spirit of St. Bernard Foundation who served as a Kiwanian for 58 years, valued the Kiwanis and Spirit of St. Bernard Foundation Scholarship Programs. 

Dr. Dauterive will be remembered for noting that the awarding of scholarships exemplifies Kiwanis and The Spirit of St. Bernard Foundations’ continuous commitment to support educational programs.
