John J. Costonis was not given any handouts while attending college. Instead, he had to work very hard to support himself. 

Due to his hard work and dedication, he got good grades, which in turn helped him obtain scholarships to both Harvard and Columbia law schools. The Costonis family would like to honor the patriarch in their lives, by providing a scholarship to a student with similar values and work ethic. The John J. Costonis Scholarship will support a student who demonstrates exemplary work ethic, just as John continues to do in various areas of his life.

High school and undergraduate students are eligible to apply if they come from a low-income background and work hard at their schooling. To apply, write about your future goals, how you are working towards them, and the hardships you’ve faced on your educational journey.
