A strong applicant will:
Be pursuing a post-secondary education. Both high school seniors and current undergraduate college students may apply.
Be able to demonstrate how being part of a community has shaped his or her values as well as speak to how those core values show up in day-to-day activities. Essay prompts are within the application.
Scholarship will be awarded one time per recipient and will be paid directly to the college or university.
A minimum GPA of 3.0 is suggested, but not a requirement.
A student may be pursuing a two- or four-year degree program.
Two $1500 awards will be given in Spring of 2022. Ideally, one will be awarded to a high school applicant and one for a college student, but the scholarship committee reserves the right to be responsive to the applicant pool.
Application will close on February 28, 2023. Award recipients will be notified by the end of March.
Once applications have been reviewed, the committee may select the top applicants (number to be decided) for interviews before the two finalists are notified.
