This scholarship is a financial need-based award for undergraduate students enrolled in the College of Education. Where available, the scholarship will give preference to a rising senior in the College demonstrating peer leadership and a commitment to youth development through community engagement and/or youth ministry. The applicants must address their work in the community in their personal essays.
