Each year, the Program selects several recipients to receive a $10,000 scholarship renewable for up to an additional three years ($40,000). Awards are for undergraduate study and may be used for education related expenses that include tuition, fees, books, supplies, room and board. In addition, Scholars are invited to participate in a special awards program and receive ongoing leadership development support.
