Every year, students across the country work hard to make a positive and lasting impact in their communities and beyond. And every year, we award $1.8 million in college scholarships to hundreds of these remarkable young people throughout the nation representing all 50 states, Washington DC and Puerto Rico.
Students have the opportunity to receive a $2,500, $10,000 or $25,000 scholarship. To recognize the important role their dedicated educators play in guiding these students along their path to success, we also award a $1,000 grant to every Equitable Excellence winner's high school.
Equitable Excellence award winners come from a wide range of backgrounds and experiences, but are united by their drive, determination, and strong character.
Applicants to the Equitable Excellence Scholarship must:
A) Demonstrate courage, strength and wisdom as shown by community impact through volunteer service
B) Be high school seniors planning to attend an accredited two-year or four-year college or university in the United States.
C) Be a United States citizen or legal resident living or claiming residency in one of the 50 U.S. states, District of Columbia or Puerto Rico.
