My father, Dr. Samuel Attoh, dedicated his life to academia. I want to honor his legacy by creating a scholarship that can help young people who are interested in the same areas of study that my father loved.
The Dr. Samuel Attoh Legacy Scholarship exists to support one student studying geography, urban planning, or STEM.
To apply, please share with us what legacy means to you and why. In addition, tell us how your upbringing has impacted your path in life and how you plan to continue or break the cycle.
What does legacy mean to you and why? How do feel your upbringing has impacted your path on life and how do you plan to continue or break the cycle?
The application deadline is Jan 6, 2022. Winners will be announced on Feb 6, 2022.
The scholarship award is $868 per winner.
The winner will be publicly announced on Feb 6, 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.
