The COVID-19 pandemic has been an extremely unique and life-altering period of time for everyone.
Whether you contracted the virus or not, the pandemic, quarantine, and other guidelines surrounding the entire ordeal have changed everyone’s lives and who they are today.
The pandemic has manifested itself in various ways for different people. Some have benefitted from the life lessons they’ve learned while others have struggled with the negative effects of isolation and uncertainty.
The Nikhil Desai Reflect and Learn COVID-19 Scholarship exists to encourage students to reflect on their COVID-19 experience. The scholarship will be awarded to one student in any field of study who best reflects the changes, both positive and negative, they’ve had to deal with through this unprecedented period of time.
Please reflect on how COVID-19 has affected your life. What have you learned about yourself and about the world during this time?
The application deadline is Feb 6, 2021. Winners will be announced on Mar 1, 2021.
The scholarship award is $1,000.
The winner will be publicly announced on Mar 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.
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.
