Life brings about challenges, ranging from small to large.
Every student has had their own personal journey, with ups and downs, that has led them to make the choices they have in school, in their relationships, and in their everyday lives. Challenges are part of the journey, and they illuminate perseverance. Elijah’s Helping Hand Scholarship Award honors the memory of a non-binary student who lost their life to suicide. The hope is to help a student as they persevere through their own personal battles.

The winner will be publicly announced on Jun 12, 2024. 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.
