Many students in the United States come out of college with debt. Others struggle to even make it through college because of the tremendous cost. However, scholarships can help students cut down on this cost.
In order to help alleviate some of the stress of student debt, the Focus Forward Scholarship looks to award two undergraduate students currently in their sophomore, junior, or senior years. These students may apply if they have a 3.0 GPA or higher and have at least one student loan. Preference will be given to women, minorities, and students attending state universities.

The application deadline is Apr 10, 2022. Winners will be announced on May 10, 2022.
Award amounts per winner are designated by the donor. Check the award amount for a detailed breakdown.
The winner will be publicly announced on May 10, 2022. Prior to the announcement date, we may contact finalists with additional questions about their application. We will work with donors to review all applications according to the scholarship criteria. Winners will be chosen based on the merit of their application.
Award checks will be sent to the financial aid office of the winner's academic institution in their name to be applied to their tuition, and in the name of their institution (depending on the school's requirements). If the award is for a qualified educational non-tuition expense, we will work with the winner directly to distribute the award and make sure it goes towards qualified expenses.
Before we award the scholarship, the winner will be required to confirm their academic enrollment status. Depending on the circumstances, verification of Student ID and/or their most recent transcript will be required.
