“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.
How do you actively listen to those around you, and what does listening mean to you?

The scholarship award is $500.
The winner will be publicly announced on Jan 31, 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.
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.
