101 Scholar

The 101 Scholar Program is back! Class 101 will be awarding four high school students, nationwide, and one local high school student who use their unique skills to make a difference in their community. Each student will win a $1,000 scholarship, and applications will be accepted beginning March 1, 2022 until May 1,2022.

The 101 Scholar represents students who exemplify demonstrated leadership in making their community a better place.

This year, the scholarship is based 60% on the degree to which they are making a difference in the community, 30% on the extent to which they demonstrate leadership, and 10% on how they are achieving academically. Students in Grades 9-12 are eligible to apply.

To apply, students have two options. They can create a video between 1-2 minutes or write a maximum 500-word personal statement. Students can pick from one of the two prompts below:

1. Describe a moment that pushed you to make a change. What did you do and what was the end result?

2. Talk about one of your unique skills or talents. How have you used it to help your community?

This year, the four winning students will be chosen from a panel of judges. We encourage all students to apply if they believe this sounds like the perfect opportunity for them.
