We do not discriminate based on age, race, or ethnic/national origin. Awards are for one year, but winners can re-apply for later years during the annual process.
Award winners must repay the award if they don’t use it for tuition, or don’t finish the school year due to avoidable circumstances. We choose winners based on
- Financial need — from parent/guardian resources (or applicant’s if relevant)
- Academic achievement — from high school & college (if attending) records
- Service & leadership — from active participation in non-academic activities or service projects, balanced with need to work and/or help out with family
- Ability & commitment — from what you have achieved while handling life’s issues
Applications must be postmarked by April 15th to be eligible for consideration. Winners are notified in mid-May; awards are presented in late May/early June.
