“A room without books is like a body without a soul,” - Cicero.
Reading is a fantastic way to improve your vocabulary, expand your imagination, and learn. Appreciating books and spending time reading is not only fun, but is also great for your mind and can help you live a more adventurous life.
This scholarship aims to support students who are avid readers and take inspiration from the books they have read.
Any student who is passionate about reading and applies the knowledge they’ve learned from books in their daily lives may apply for this scholarship.

The winner will be publicly announced on Jun 12, 2022. 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 or future 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.
