This scholarship exists to reinforce the most enjoyable and meaningful part of life – good friends and relationships.
Despite how short life is, most people get caught up in the grind. Instead of spending time with the people they love, they focus on the hedonic treadmill of achievement, consistently prioritizing the next achievement at work over enjoyable laughs with friends.
But at the end of your life, what are you going to care about? The extra dollar in the bank account, or the enjoyable moments that you spent with the people you love?
As one small way to encourage everyone to focus on what matters most in life, this scholarship exists to allow you the opportunity for a scholarship that doesn’t waste your time.
Apply without writing an essay, and go spend the hour you save with a friend or a loved one.
The application deadline is Oct 31, 2021. Winners will be announced on Mar 31, 2022.
The scholarship award is $1,000.
The winner will be publicly announced on Mar 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.
