College Scholarships

College isn't easy, or cheap

We get it - paying for college is debatably more difficult than attending college; so we're here to help. We're awarding four $1,000 student scholarships to graduating high school seniors, current college students and current graduate-level students.

 

Our 2022 Scholarship Application period has closed. Check back in March of 2023 for our 2023 Scholarship Program.
