Awarding Scholarships

Our scholarships are awarded based on an applicant’s character. We do not consider academic achievement, athletic prowess, musical ability, artistic talent or financial need.

Four aspects of student’s character are considered when making an award.

Courage: Taking risks and following you own conscience with fearlessness.
Integrity: Being truthful and trustworthy to oneself and others.
Responsibility: Conveying an attitude of commitment and conviction.
Concern: Demonstrating compassion and caring attitude towards others, and helping them achieve their best.
