Carolyn Kelly Memorial Education Fund has made an announcement for their scholarship program for the year 2022. The program welcomes undergraduates who maintain a GPA of 2.75, who are likely to, through their actions and deeds, make a substantial contribution to society. They provide opportunities for those individuals who genuinely desire a better life through education and are ready to stand straight against as many obstacles come their way to seek education and stand tall in the face of adversity. Students need to demonstrate their education to excel in their lives through service, education, and employment.
The scholarship will be given to a selected applicant who will be chosen based on their application, academic and community achievements, work experience, awards/honors, community, extracurricular activities, leadership potential, and other factors. The winner will receive an award amount of up to $12,000. The award will be directly given to the student’s enrolled institution in a check. The amount will be used for students’ educational purposes, such as managing their tuition fees, library fees, books and other supplies, transportation, accommodation, food, and other related expenses.
The Carolyn Kelly Memorial Education Fund was formed as a legacy of Carolyn Kelly to provide financial assistance to all individuals trying to further their education and help underprivileged and transgender individuals attain their potential no matter their station in life. This program provides opportunities to such students to bring their potential and seek education in the field of their choice.
