Oftentimes, the academic process can be agonizing and stressful, especially in our climate today. Writing scholarship essays, answering application questions, all while balancing regular school work can become overwhelming and rather unenjoyable. This often leads to discontent and discouragement, swaying students from school and ruining their perception of education.
In an attempt to dispel this thinking, I am creating the Nikhil Desai "Favorite Film" Scholarship. I believe this scholarship will provide students with an academic opportunity that is enjoyable, creatively stimulating, and expressive beyond the monotony of regular school work.
Anyone is eligible to apply for this scholarship. To apply, please tell me about your all-time favorite movie/film and why it’s your favorite!
What is your all-time favorite film? Why?
The application deadline is May 1, 2021. Winners will be announced on Jun 30, 2021.
The scholarship award is $1,000.
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.
