Scholarships – Supporting Academic Careers
EmpowerMe offers three scholarships for which high school and undergraduate students may apply. All students are welcome to apply for the program. The Board of Directors and Advisory Council Members will review student applications using an unbiased, comprehensive assessment formula which will include considerations of financial need, academic achievement, and most significantly, motivation and potential for success. Students who fulfill this criteria will be rewarded an EmpowerMe scholarship.
The EmpowerMe Scholarship is a general scholarship available to undergraduate students, regardless of major or career interests.
