From little things, big things grow.

The problems facing the world today can make it easy to feel overwhelmed and powerless to make a difference, but the most important opportunities to create meaningful change are just outside your door. This is a scholarship for students who are working to change the world by taking action in their local communities.

Social action within your local community, environment, economy, and elections is a powerful step forward that can reverberate to the national and global level.

The recipient of the Act Locally Scholarship will receive $500. All GPAs will be considered, and all majors are invited to apply.

While not required, applicants with experience volunteering or working to better their local community through social, environmental, or economic change are preferred.
