Upon graduation, students go on to pursue a variety of different careers that will be contingent on their interests and purpose. Among those choices, social work remains to be one of the most rewarding as it serves to make a positive difference in others lives.

As college costs continue to rise at a disproportionate rate to the household income, it can be financially difficult for students interested in pursuing social work to receive the appropriate credentials. Everyone deserves the opportunity to be able to achieve their career goals, and given their impact in society students should be encouraged to stay on that intended path.

In memory of Tyler Schaeffer, this scholarship will support a student interested in pursuing social work or criminal justice and who is driven by making the world a better place. Any high school senior may apply to this scholarship.

To apply, please tell us what you are planning to do with your degree to help those in the community who are in need?
