The world is rigged in favor of people with unearned advantages.
Socioeconomic status, race, gender, health, country of origin, and a host of other factors deeply influence one’s ability to ascend in the world.
As a small way to help create a more equal playing field, the “$1,000 Equal Opportunity” Scholarship exists to support two motivated high school, undergraduate, or graduate school students who want to improve their life and the lives of the people around them.
The scholarship is open to students from any field of study who have a 2.0 GPA or higher.
The application deadline is Sep 1, 2022. Winners will be announced on Oct 1, 2022.
The scholarship award is $500 per winner. It will be awarded to 2 winners every 12 months.
The winner will be publicly announced on Oct 1, 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.
