Gap years are used in different ways by students at different points in their education. Students use this time to learn, grow, and better themselves. While it isn’t the traditional path, taking a gap year can do a lot of good. Students who have previously taken a gap year and went back to school afterward are encouraged to apply for the @ESPdaniella’s Gap Year Scholarship. This scholarship seeks to support students who took a gap year and came back stronger. It is open to students in high school or any stage of college who have previously taken a gap year.
In a video submission, demonstrate how you used your gap year to better yourself. This video should include images or video displaying what you did during your gap year.
The application deadline is Oct 31, 2022. Winners will be announced on Dec 1, 2022.
Award amounts per winner are designated by the donor. Check the award amount for a detailed breakdown.
The winner will be publicly announced on Dec 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.
