Everyone deserves the chance to obtain a high-quality education, but unfortunately for many students, money is a limiting factor.
Even though financial aid is awarded to 86% of first-year, full-time students, many students 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 solution to the $1.8 trillion dollar student debt crisis, the Education Matters Scholarship is open to all motivated and driven undergraduate students in any field of study.
To apply, please tell us about a time you overcame adversity and what that experience taught you about yourself? Please also let us know about your educational and career goals.

The application deadline is Aug 23, 2021. Winners will be announced on Aug 27, 2021.
The scholarship award is $15,000.
The winner will be publicly announced on Aug 27, 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.
