“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has.”- Margaret Mead
Giving back helps foster the spirit, growth, and resilience of all communities.
When you find ways to support your community, you contribute to the virtuous cycle of giving that helps individuals and the entire community grow stronger.
The problems facing the world today can make it easy to feel overwhelmed and powerless to make a difference, but the most important opportunities to create meaningful change are just outside your door.
I'd like to support students who are involved in community engagement and advocacy. This mission is personally important to me because serving our communities and standing up for what matters to us, will shape our world.
As a way forward for students who aspire to make a difference in the lives of others, the Misha Brahmbhatt Help Your Community Scholarship will support one student in any field of study who is actively seeking to make the world a better place.
To apply, please write about the ways in which you’re giving back to your community and how you think your actions have impacted the lives of others.
In what ways are you giving back to your community? How do you think your actions have impacted the lives of others? What do you hope to do in the future to leave your community better than the way you entered it?
The application deadline is Jun 2, 2021. Winners will be announced on Jul 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 Jul 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.
