If selected as a recipient, the student will receive a $10,000 award. Up to 50 awards will be granted. The awards will be paid in U.S. dollars (USD).
A scholarship is awarded for one academic year and is not renewable. Recipients may not receive an award in two consecutive years. Students are encouraged to apply each year they are eligible to do so. Only one student per household may be awarded a scholarship per award cycle.
