As a brief background on the scholarship, this is our third year running this program, and we would like to ensure that we are reaching the correct students. We have designed the program to highlight the incredible potential of young people in the United States struggling with homelessness, housing instability, or extreme poverty. This scholarship covers eligible educational expenses, up to $8,000. Selected students can use the scholarship for any type of higher education, including but not limited to community college classes, trade school/trade certifications, bachelor's degrees, and so on. In addition, students are eligible to apply if: they are experiencing homelessness or housing insecurity as defined under the McKinney-Vento Act, are in extreme poverty, or their family is currently going through a transition to attain post-secondary education. You can find a more detailed explanation of eligibility at https://eequal.org/scholarships/. The application opens on November 1st, 2021, and will close on March 1st, 2022. We expect to notify recipients in May 2022.
