There are so many hard workers in the world who just need a little assistance in order to achieve their goals.
Prospective students are one such group, with many needing some financial help in order to pay for tuition and other college costs. With the student debt crisis reaching new heights of $1.7 trillion, students are understandably wary of taking out loans to finance their education.
This scholarship seeks to help students with financial need afford higher education so they can pursue all of their dreams.
Any high school senior or undergraduate student who will be a first-generation college student may apply for this scholarship.

The scholarship award is $1,000 per winner.
The winner will be publicly announced on May 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 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.
