The United States is known as the land of opportunity, but the unfortunate reality is that not everyone starts on an even playing field.

While most people encounter challenges at some point in their youth, some have to confront more adversity than others.  Whether it’s growing up with limited financial means, facing racism, living with a disability, or coping with the loss of a loved one, significant hardships at a young age can have a long-lasting effect.

The WiseGeek Life Isn’t Easy Scholarship exists to help college students who have faced difficult circumstances head-on and come out stronger for it.  We’re hoping to foster and support those who have shown resilience through turbulent times.
