Cody Cochlin was a dear friend who passed away too soon.
Cody was passionate about skateboarding and his education but struggled to pay his tuition before his passing. Cody understood the struggles of affording college and used his passion for skating as a means of escape.
This scholarship aims to honor the life of Cody Cochlin by supporting students who share his love for skateboarding and similar hobbies. Any low-income undergraduate student who rollerblades, rollerskates, skateboards, or snowboards may apply for this scholarship.
To apply, submit a video of you performing a trick you're proud of. The video can be any length, and can be submitted alongside any essays or other media you feel may boost your odds of success, but you must be recognizable while performing said trick (i.e. no face coverings or blurred facial edits). The video can be a media submission or a YouTube link, but know that YouTube submissions are preferred.
The application deadline is Oct 15, 2022. Winners will be announced on Nov 15, 2022.
Award amounts per winner are designated by the donor. Check the award amount for a detailed breakdown.
The winner will be publicly announced on Nov 15, 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 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.
