Gladys Ruth was a mother who inspired those in her life by spreading the message of just how important it is to be yourself and to utilize your unique attributes to your advantage.
By being unapologetically yourself, you can work towards achieving your fullest potential in life, no matter what that might be. It’s not only important to be yourself, but also to help others.
The Gladys Ruth Legacy “Service” Memorial Scholarship was made to support an African American student who is unapologetically themselves and supports others through acts of service.
This scholarship is meant for an unapologetic African American student who is a first generation college student, an active community service member, and embraces their uniqueness.
Any African American student who is a first generation college student, enrolled in a two or four year program, has a GPA of 2.5 or above, and has participated in community service in the last five years may apply for this scholarship.
To apply, tell us how you’re different, and how you use your uniqueness to make a difference in someone’s life.
