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 4, 2022. Winners will be announced on Apr 1, 2022.
The scholarship award is $1,000.
The winner will be publicly announced on Apr 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.
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.
