Strong Roots Scholarship

Award Amount $500
Deadline August 31, 2020
Requirements

In order for a submission to be considered “complete,” all candidates must submit the following:

  • An updated resumé that includes academic, professional, and volunteer experiences with a focus on community building. Candidates can feel free to highlight relevant coursework or experiences that might not be included in a typical resumé. This document must, however, be limited to actual experiences (that is, “interests” do not count as experiences).
  • A 500-word essay that answers the following question: How is the meaning of the word “community” changing in today’s world, and what does that mean for people who wish to build strong, healthy communities?
  • A current official academic transcript demonstrating that the candidate’s cumulative grade point average is 3.0 or greater. (Note: applicants who cannot provide an official transcript from their current institution may submit both an unofficial transcript from their current institution, as well as an official transcript from their last school.)
