  • Winners announced: Jan 15, 2020.

ELIGIBILITY

The scholarship is aimed at students who current juniors, seniors or recent college graduates and who meet the following criteria:

  • GPA (unweighted) of 3.5 or above in a rigorous courseload.
  • Demonstrated extracurricular interests and leadership, or significant family responsibilities.
  • A strong desire to give back to the community.
