The application must be submitted by the deadline to be considered.
Documents must be submitted in PDF format.
Unofficial Transcripts are acceptable with the initial application. However, Official Sealed Transcripts from all high schools or colleges attended may be submitted after the deadline if you are selected for the Scholarship.
If a student receives a scholarship based on a perceived 4-year university cost, and the student opts to attend community college or trade school, the award amount may be adjusted accordingly.
Scholarship amounts are determined by a variety of factors including, but not limited to: academic success, income, and tuition cost.

Our goal is to reach those who are most disadvantaged

We give additional consideration to youth who demonstrate the traits of an underdog.

An underdog is an individual that, despite facing challenges such as those of academic or financial caliber, still displays the tenacity to better themselves given the right opportunity and can still endeavor to succeed in life with the right support.

What we are looking for

Show us how
Committed you are

We encourage you to speak about your passions, goals, and the challenges you face either academically or personally.

Grades are important,
but not everything

We believe that knowledge is not only represented by how high grades are, but also the student’s attitude towards others and problem solving capabilities.

We believe in a future of well rounded individuals that strive to succeed in the path that they set out to achieve in life.
