Everyone deserves the chance to obtain a high-quality education, but unfortunately for many students, finances are a limiting factor.
Even though financial aid is awarded to 86% of first-year, full-time students, many recent high school graduates still have to go out of pocket or apply for loans to pay for their education, which can make their financial troubles increase drastically.
As a small contribution to this issue’s solution, the Dodd-Owens Scholarship is open to all high school seniors who are looking to attend a four-year university.
The application deadline is Feb 21, 2021. Winners will be announced on Mar 21, 2021.
The scholarship award is $500.
The winner will be publicly announced on Mar 21, 2021. 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.
