It can be easy to lose momentum near the end of school. After long years of working toward a goal, it’s hard to keep the same energy and drive from early on.
And yet, those who make the final push to the end of their education, successfully achieving the goal they’ve been striving for, receive a personal sense of accomplishment like no other. To help propel students into their last couple years of college, The Final Push Scholarship will support one low-income student coming near the end of their college career.
Undergraduate juniors and seniors are eligible to apply if they are low-income students and have a passion to push through the last couple years of college. To apply, write about why graduating is important to you and how you will use your degree to make an impact.
Why is graduating important to you, and how will you make an impact through your career?
The application deadline is Mar 4, 2022. Winners will be announced on Apr 1, 2022.
Award amounts per winner are designated by the donor. Check the award amount for a detailed breakdown.
The winner will be publicly announced on Apr 1, 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 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.
