What is the award amount?

Award amounts vary by recipient.  We consider current academic records, volunteer work, financial need, future goals, and writing skills. Awards may be between $1,000 and $10,000.  Smaller awards may be granted by the foundation based on our evaluations of the applicants and essays.


How do I apply?

Applicants can apply by clicking on the links throughout this website once the application window has opened.



Does the award renew annually?

No.  Award winners may re-apply each year for the scholarship, and might find it useful to indicate that they are past recipients.


Can the scholarship be used for non-tuition items, like books?

Yes.  We recognize that financial challenges of higher education are not restricted to tuition fees.  While this is not a “blank check”, it may be used for non-tuition fees charged to students by the accredited institutions.
