Heather Benefield was a woman who encompassed all the wonderful things the world has to offer and all the wonderful things that the world needs more of. She was a friend, a listener, an adventurer, and courageous. She was a loving mom and her daughter’s best friend. 

On March 11th, 2020, Heather Benefield’s life was taken from her in an act of domestic violence, leaving behind her 21-year-old daughter, Courtney Jenkins. 

Losing a parent can be devastating and can make it difficult to focus on your education or other responsibilities. In order to keep going, it’s critical that students who have lost their parents receive extra encouragement when pursuing higher education.

This memorial scholarship seeks to support undergraduate students who have lost a parent so they can persevere through the loss and complete their education.  

Any current undergraduate student who has lost a parent may apply for this scholarship opportunity. 

To apply, tell us what you learned from the parent you lost and how that loss has impacted your understanding of the world.
