Access to Higher Education Scholarship


Scholarship Value: $1,000

The purpose of the Access to Higher Education Scholarship is to bring awareness to the many obstacles that prevent students from seeking higher education. We want to hear what students believe are the biggest obstacles people face, and what can be done to address such obstacles. This can range anywhere from social and economic factors to any flaws within the education system that you think could be mended to ensure that every student has an equal chance of attending college.

High school seniors who will be enrolled in college before the application deadline are also eligible to apply. All applicants must have a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale.

Scholarship Application

A complete scholarship application must include the following:

A) A current academic transcript, official or unofficial

B) An updated resume

C) In a 750-word personal essay, discuss the many factors that prevent people from having access to higher education and the ways to address them. What can be done to make higher education accessible to everyone seeking it?
