Richard Neumann was a beloved grandfather who believed that problem-solving and creative thinking were forms of art.
The rising generation is full of creative students who will undoubtedly change the world. However, many of these unconventional thinkers don’t always flourish in traditional schooling and are discouraged from pursuing their goals. In order to make the world more cohesive and visionary, these special students must be supported.
This scholarship aims to support high school students who are creative so they can find innovative solutions to today’s problems.
Any creative high school senior who likes to make things or find solutions to problems may apply for this scholarship.
To apply, tell us about something you’ve created to solve a problem as well as how you would go about solving another problem if you had the necessary resources.
Explain something you have created to solve a problem for yourself or for someone else. Please lay out a detailed plan on what you believe would solve a problem if you had the money and resources to create it.
The application deadline is Apr 15, 2022. Winners will be announced on May 15, 2022.

The winner will be publicly announced on May 15, 2022. 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.
