Our Scholarships

For the 2022 academic year, eight total scholarships of $5,000 USD each were awarded across the following themes:

Social justice

As social justice issues, including but not limited to: policing, anti-LGBTQ+ legislation, religious persecution, sexism, racism and sexual violence continue to dominate the world news the need for significant social justice reform has only increased. These scholarships will be awarded to tomorrow’s leaders who are committed to eradicating racism, violence, systemic biases and other acts of intolerance.

Global health

As individuals and communities around the world continue to overcome the challenges of a global pandemic, it’s clear that there is a strong need for innovative approaches to improve global health. These scholarships will be awarded to students who are committed to improving health outcomes and quality of life for individuals all over the world.

Global citizenship

As global conflicts have escalated across the world stage, this year has uncovered the importance of elevating humanity when addressing challenges across social, political, and economic issues. Scholarships in this category will be awarded to students who embody their own definition of being a global citizen with the purpose of making a positive impact on their community and the world.

Environmental sustainability

The most critical resource that we have is a healthy planet, yet the ongoing threats to environmental health continue to endanger our livelihood. Scholarships in this category will be awarded to students who are actively fighting climate change and other risks to our planet in order to create a more sustainable environment for all future generations.
