Hawthorne's Fallen Heroes Scholarship Program
Application status: Closed

                 

Hawthorne’s Fallen Heroes Foundation has established a scholarship program to assist students who have participated in the Hawthorne Power Project or Explorer Program and plan to continue their education in college or vocational school programs.

This program is administered by Scholarship America®, the nation’s largest designer and manager of scholarship, tuition assistance and other education support programs for corporations, foundations, associations, and individuals. Awards are granted without regard to race, color, creed, religion, sexual orientation, age, gender, disability, or national origin.

Applicants to the Hawthorne’s Fallen Heroes Scholarship Program must:

  • Be high school seniors or graduates or current college undergraduates who have participated in the Hawthorne Power Project or Explorer Program.
  • Plan to enroll in part-time or full-time undergraduate study at an accredited two or four-year college, university or vocational-technical school for the entire upcoming academic year

Selection of Recipients

Scholarship recipients are selected on the basis of:

  • Academic record
  • Demonstrated leadership and participation in school and community activities
  • Work experience
  • Statement of goals and aspirations
  • Unusual personal or family circumstances
  • An online recommendation.

Financial need is not considered.

Selection of recipients is made by Scholarship America. In no instance does any officer or employee of Hawthorne’s Fallen Heroes Foundation play a part in the selection. Not all applicants to the program will be selected as recipients. All applicants agree to accept the decision as final.

Awards

If selected as a recipient, the student will receive a $2,500 award. Up to 2 awards will be granted. Awards are not renewable, but students may reapply to the program each year they meet eligibility requirements. If there are not enough qualified applicants to award two recipients, one award of $5,000 will be given instead.

Awards are for undergraduate study only.

Notification

All applicants will be notified in late June.

Scholarship America processes scholarship payments on behalf of Hawthorne’s Fallen Heroes Foundation. Payment is made in early August.
