“Everything can be taken from a man but one thing: the last of the human freedoms—to choose one’s attitude in any given set of circumstances, to choose one’s own way.” - Victor Frankl
We can’t control the circumstances of our birth, the situation we are raised in, or events of the past, but we can control how we react to these challenges, especially in the classroom.
Our education system often rewards students who excel at memorizing facts and formulas, instead of those individuals who develop critical thinking skills and self-awareness.
But in life, memorizing facts and formulas won’t allow you to succeed in this world. Instead, it’s the ability to think independently, solve ambiguous problems, and find strength in the face of hardship and adversity that determines whether or not you’ll succeed in this world.
As one small way to support the tenacious and ambitious independent thinkers of our world, the Harold Reighn Moxie Scholarship will be awarded to one high school senior who will be the first in their family to attend college.
All first-generation students who are currently high school seniors and plan to attend college in the fall of 2021 are eligible to apply. As part of your application, you will have the opportunity to tell us more about your story, the adversities you’ve encountered, and your plans for the future.
Please tell us a little bit of your story. What adversities have you encountered that have changed the way you live your life? What do you hope to achieve in the future with these life lessons in mind?
The application deadline is Jun 1, 2021. Winners will be announced on Jun 30, 2021.
The scholarship award is $1,365.
The winner will be publicly announced on Jun 30, 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.
