“I would rather walk with a friend in the dark, than alone in the light,” -Helen Keller.
True friends can be hard to find but can make the difficult times in life much easier to bear. Knowing the value of friendship and being there when your friends need you ultimately makes the world a better, kinder place.
This scholarship seeks to support students who know the value of friendship and strive to be the best friends they can be.

The winner will be publicly announced on Dec 31, 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.
