CRANDALL-STALLOCH COMMUNITY SAFETY SCHOLARSHIP
Supporting Continuing Education and Community Service
American Eagle Style follows the traditional philosophy of the martial arts. Based on this, their black belts are supposed to make an overall positive contribution to their communities, also benefiting their school.
The American Martial Arts Institute believes that education is essential for the growth of individuals and for the benefit of society. The school encourages students to read, expanding their knowledge. One way the school encourages this is to require students to begin a martial arts library of books and DVDs beginning with the book Be Safe Pysically and Mentally with the Crandall System about personal safety in daily life. This continues with other resources including the American Eagle Style Textbook and the DVD American Eagle Style Self-Defense, Volume 1. From this beginning, students are encouraged and expected to add to their personal library with the books and DVDS by other authors. By speaking with their instructors, students learn how to identify a book, DVD, or website that has been produced by a repetuable individual with quality information.
The school also prioritizes academic excellence in school and requires the students to present their report cards to their instructor each marking period so they may discuss education, especially the importance of appropriate socialization and interpersonal interactions.
The American Martial Arts Institute sponsors the Crandall-Stalloch Scholarship for Community Safety, founded in 2010 to support the continuing education of an American Eagle Style student who is a graduating senior enrolling in a 2 or 4 year college.
This award was created by Grandmaster Clifford C. Crandall, Jr., the founder of the American Martial Arts Institute and American Eagle Style, with support by Mr. Eric Stalloch, the business owner of the main training location.
Criteria for Eligibility
NOTE: Essay guidelines are available at the main office.
The essays and projects are judged by a panel of 6th and 7th degree black belts with Grandmaster Crandall leading the committee. The scholarship is awarded to one individual who accumulates the most points based on the grading rubric. Some years, no scholarship will be granted because there will be no applicants. In years where there is a single applicant, that applicant must score the minimum points stated in the essay guideline sheet to win the award.
We are proud to be a traditional school which values the education of all our students. If you have any questions about this scholarship, contact the main office.
