Dr. Seuss has said, “from there to here, and here to there, funny things are everywhere.”
We don’t always have to take ourselves too seriously. Fun people inspire creativity and bring heart to their work. The Freddie L Brown Scholarship exists to celebrate an undergraduate student with wit and humor that is expressed through creative outlets.
High school and undergraduate students are encouraged to apply, submitting their best original story, poem, anecdote, drawing, etc. that displays their wit, humor, and spirit.
Share your best original anecdote, story, poem or drawing displaying your wit and humor.
The application deadline is Mar 1, 2023. Winners will be announced on Apr 1, 2023.
Award amounts per winner are designated by the donor. Check the award amount for a detailed breakdown.
The winner will be publicly announced on Apr 1, 2023. 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.
