School is crucial, but grades and test scores aren’t everything: people with hobbies and interests tend to have a more well-rounded and enjoyable life.
Having hobbies allows students to take a break from the everyday school days and engage in activities special to them. This could be sports, arts, movies, clubs, and so much more. Everyone’s hobbies make them unique and give them their own set of specialties and interests. To encourage students in the pursuit of their hobbies, the Hobbies Matter scholarship seeks to award two students who are passionate about the hobbies they engage in.
Any student can apply if they are in high school, undergraduate or graduate school. To apply, write about one of your favorite hobbies and what it means to you.
Tell us about one of your favorite hobbies and why you enjoy it.
The application deadline is Mar 31, 2022. Winners will be announced on May 1, 2022.
The scholarship award is $2,000.
The winner will be publicly announced on May 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.
