What growth came from these experiences, and how are they working to make a positive impact on those around you? The following scholarship asks you to pen down an essay given the following topic and share your stories. The scholarship winner will be chosen based on the criteria outlined below and awarded $1,000 to go towards their higher education. The deadline to apply is September 30, 2021.
