In life, we often credit our accomplishments with shaping us into who we are. While this is true, our failures also play monumental roles in helping us grow.
Each missed opportunity and heartbreak can serve a purpose!
This scholarship is for students who find the strength to value their failures and voice them aloud—for students who know that there are always learning opportunities on the horizon and who pivot to take each failure as an opportunity to reflect, regroup, and rejoice as they improve.
It will be awarded to a student who demonstrates introspectiveness and growth from a notable failure in their life. Students at any educational level are welcome to apply.
Describe the failure that you are most thankful for in your life. How has it redirected and influenced you into becoming who you are today?
The application deadline is Dec 1, 2020. Winners will be announced on Jan 1, 2021.
The scholarship award is $1,000.
The winner will be publicly announced on Jan 1, 2021. 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.
