“The wisdom of the wise, and the experience of ages, may be preserved by quotation.” — Issac D’Israeli
Everyone has a mantra that they swear by. Whether we repeat it during the highest or lowest points of our lives, we all have a phrase that never fails to resonate with us. Quotes can be such a great source of inspiration and guidance when we need some extra encouragement.
The “Wise Words” Scholarship is designed to give students time to reflect on a quote that has influenced their lives in a positive manner. Any written or spoken phrase which carries a special meaning for you may be submitted. Students of any education level are eligible for this scholarship.
To apply, write a short essay describing what this quote means to you and why this quote is special.

The winner will be publicly announced on Oct 31, 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.
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.
