Education is one of the best ways to give young men opportunities, allowing them to create a brighter future for themselves.
Knowing education fuels such opportunities, the Adrin Ohaekwe Memorial Scholarship will help support young minority men as they pursue their educational goals.
Because Adrin loved and was an avid chess player, this scholarship will support a student pursuing upper level education who also enjoys playing chess.
BIPOC undergraduate male students are eligible to apply if they play chess.
To apply, write about how the skills used in playing chess translate to success in real life.
What are you career goals, and what have you learned in playing chess that will help you achieve these goals?
The application deadline is May 1, 2023. Winners will be announced on Jul 23, 2023.
Award amounts per winner are designated by the donor. Check the award amount for a detailed breakdown.
The winner will be publicly announced on Jul 23, 2023. 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.
Award checks will be sent to the financial aid office of the winner's academic institution in their name to be applied to their tuition, and in the name of their institution (depending on the school's requirements). If the award is for a qualified educational non-tuition expense, we will work with the winner directly to distribute the award and make sure it goes towards qualified expenses.
Before we award the scholarship, the winner will be required to confirm their academic enrollment status. Depending on the circumstances, verification of Student ID and/or their most recent transcript will be required.
