2020 was one of the hardest years of our lifetime.
The pandemic affected everyone in different ways. Some people lost loved ones. Others lost their jobs. Nearly everyone had to cancel events that they had been looking forward to.
And the pandemic wasn’t the only source of difficulty in 2020. Various social, environmental, and economic issues also bubbled to the surface.
In confronting the many challenges of the 2020 experience in both life and business, we all learned more about ourselves. Through confronting these difficulties, we were forced to develop creative solutions to unexpected and difficult problems.
The A Sani Life Scholarship exists to encourage people to reflect on what they learned during 2020 and to think about how they will use those learnings to build a brighter future in 2021 and beyond.
All students in any field of study are eligible to apply for this scholarship.
To apply, please share your personal 2020 experience, what you learned, and how you will take these lessons into your life for a brighter 2021. Depending on your preference, you can share your story via a 200-800 word essay OR via a 2-5 minute video.
Tell us more about your 2020 experience. What did you learn? What experiences will you remember? How did the year shape your plans for the future?
The application deadline is Jun 1, 2021. Winners will be announced on Jun 30, 2021.
The scholarship award is $1,000.
The winner will be publicly announced on Jun 30, 2021. Prior to the announcement date, we may contact finalists with additional questions about their application. We will work with donors to review all applications according to the scholarship criteria. Winners will be chosen based on the merit of their application.
We will send the award check to the financial aid office of the winner’s academic institution or future academic institution in their name, and in the name of their institution (depending on the school’s requirements). If the student's academic institution does not have a financial aid office, the student will receive the funding directly.
Before we award the scholarship, the winner will be required to verify their academic enrollment status by providing a copy of their most recent transcript.
