“Although the world is full of suffering, it is also full of the overcoming of it,” -Helen Keller.
While obstacles often feel discouraging, they give you a chance to learn, grow, and overcome, ultimately making you a more strong and resilient person.
This scholarship seeks to support students who have overcome difficulties, obstacles, or adversity in their life.
Any student who has turned an obstacle into a positive situation or a learning experience may apply for this scholarship.
To apply, tell us about a turnaround story in your life that you are proud of.

The application deadline is Apr 27, 2022. Winners will be announced on May 27, 2022.
The scholarship award is $500 per winner.
The winner will be publicly announced on May 27, 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.
