Open Door Scholarship


Scholarship Value: $1,000
Awards Available: 1

As humans, we are capable of much more than we give ourselves credit. We believe that when we experience a life-changing event or decision, our bodies' instincts take over and we somehow 'know' what to do. For this scholarship, walk us through a time in your life when you had been faced with a life-changing choice or opportunity. How did you know which decision to make, and what doors opened/ opportunities presented after you made this decision?

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 discusses the choices or thought process they have when a new opportunity presents itself.

Eligibility

A) The scholarship is open to any current high school seniors, college freshmen, and college sophomores residing in one of the 50 states or the District of Columbia and who is enrolled and/or accepted for the 2021-22 school year.

B) Candidates for this scholarship should have a minimum GPA of 3.0 or higher

Application Requirements

A) The candidate must submit a 750 – 1,000 word essay response to the prompt: Discuss a time when you had been faced with a life-changing choice or an opportunity. How did you know which decision to make, and what new doors opened because you made this decision?

B) The candidate must submit a professional resumé that lists their experience, both professional and academic.

C) The candidate must submit a transcript from their current school.
