For this scholarship, we are looking to hear from students who have an interest in public welfare and improving their community. We are asking applicants to discuss their involvement in their community, any organizations they are involved in, and the academic value they have learned and/or gained from giving back to others. Some examples of civic involvement include, but are not limited to, voting, volunteering at a local or nonprofit organization, coaching for a community sports league, tutoring, or fundraising for a charity.
The deadline to apply for this scholarship is January 31, 2022. Once all submissions have been received, the entries will be reviewed, and one student will be selected to receive a $1,000 award. The award will be given to the person who best demonstrates their involvement in their community and how it has affected them.
We look forward to hearing from students on ways they are working to better their communities. Thank you for your interest in our Public Spirit Scholarship.
