Anything is possible as long as you believe.
School is a critical point in young adults’ lives when they’re determining their goals, plans for the future, and purpose in life. School can be a tumultuous time and a turning point for many students, so motivating others can be very beneficial.
This scholarship seeks to support one student who is driven to inspire and motivate others and to make a positive impact on the lives of others.
Any high school senior who has overcome adversity and is planning on pursuing some type of post-secondary education may apply for this scholarship.
To apply, tell us about your "why", an experience in which you've overcome adversity, and why you're passionate about helping others.
What is your "why?" What adversity have you overcome and what did you learn from it? Why is inspiring and helping others important to you?
The application deadline is Nov 1, 2021. Winners will be announced on Dec 1, 2021.
Award amounts per winner are designated by the donor. Check the award amount for a detailed breakdown.
The winner will be publicly announced on Dec 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.
Award checks will be sent to the financial aid office of the winner's academic institution or future academic institution in their name to be applied to their tuition, and in the name of their institution (depending on the school's requirements). If the award is for a qualified educational non-tuition expense, we will work with the winner directly to distribute the award and make sure it goes towards qualified expenses.
Before we award the scholarship, the winner will be required to confirm their academic enrollment status. Depending on the circumstances, verification of Student ID and/or their most recent transcript will be required.
