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 Mar 1, 2022. Winners will be announced on Mar 31, 2022.
The scholarship award is $1,000. It will be awarded to 2 winners every 12 months.
The winner will be publicly announced on Mar 31, 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.
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.
