There are countless students across the country who are interested in continuing their studies but need financial assistance to do so.
With college costs growing rapidly, more and more students are unable to afford to pursue their dreams of higher education. While student loans are an option for some, many students are wary of taking on such high debt at a young age after witnessing the growing student debt crisis.
This scholarship seeks to support students who are in great need of financial aid so they can afford to attain a college degree.
Any low-income high school senior, undergraduate, or graduate student who has at least a 3.0 GPA may apply for this scholarship, but first-generation students, applicants who display leadership qualities, and students who have community service experience are preferred.
