Nordstrom is pleased to announce it is once again accepting applications for the annual Nordstrom Scholarship Program, now in its 14th year.

Nordstrom will award $10,000 scholarships to 40 high-school juniors from across the country. Applicants must demonstrate outstanding community involvement, scholastic achievement and financial need. The scholarships will be paid in equal installments over four years.

The scholarship program is available in the following Nordstrom regions:
• Los Angeles, Calif.
• San Diego, Calif.
• Bay Area/Sacramento County, Calif.
• Alaska/Washington
• Northern/Central, New Jersey
• Chicagoland/DuPage County, Illinois
• Atlanta, Georgia
• Washington, D.C./Baltimore & Metro Area

"Every year I'm so inspired by each and every one of our Nordstrom Scholarship recipients," said Amelia Ransom Letcher, Nordstrom Corporate Diversity Affairs. "These students, many of whom face tremendous obstacles, represent the best in academic achievement and community service."

Scholarship applications must be postmarked by May 31, 2008 and are now available in high-school guidance offices within participating regions as well as Nordstrom and Nordstrom Rack stores. Winning students will be selected by a committee of local community leaders and will be honored at an awards ceremony within their community.
