The student loan crisis has grown tremendously in recent decades, surpassing a record $1.7 trillion in debt in the US alone.
There are currently 45 million people paying off student loans in the United States, owing an average of more than $37,000 each. The high costs of college make it difficult or impossible for many students to pay their tuition out of pocket, leading many to take on debt that takes decades to pay off.
This scholarship seeks to support high school seniors who are hoping to graduate from college debt-free.
Any high school senior who will be pursuing post-secondary education and is looking to avoid student debt may apply for this scholarship.
