“I remind myself every morning: Nothing I say this day will teach me anything. So if I’m going to learn, I must do it by listening,” -Larry King.
Being a good listener not only helps you learn from the wisdom of others but also makes those around you feel heard and appreciated. Broadening your horizons can be as simple as just keeping an open mind and truly listening to others.
This scholarship aims to encourage students to be good listeners to those around them.
Any student may apply for this scholarship by telling us how you actively listen to others and what listening means to you.

The winner will be publicly announced on Jun 21, 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.
