A few years ago, a kind and selfless soul in Deborah Doherty was lost. Throughout her lifetime, she wanted everyone around her to be happy and tried to bring a smile to the faces of those in her life.
In Deborah's honor and to help people achieve their goals in and out of the classroom, the Deborah's Grace Scholarship will support all high school seniors and current undergraduate students who have gone through and overcome some form of adversity.
To apply, please write about an example of adversity you’ve endured, how you’ve overcome it, and how your resilience will help you overcome more adversity in the future.
What is an example of adversity that you've endured, how have you overcome it, and how will your resilience help you in the future?
The application deadline is Jan 31, 2022. Winners will be announced on Feb 28, 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 Feb 28, 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.
