Equitable Excellence Scholarship

Equitable is committed to students who show potential: those with the courage to pursue what’s possible; who display strength in managing challenges; who share wisdom with others. The Equitable Excellence® Scholarship is celebrating 22 years of providing funding to students who are dedicated to achieving their dreams.  

To support students throughout their academic journeys, Equitable will provide 100 $5,000 annual scholarships that will be renewed each academic year for four years, for a total of $20,000 per recipient. And 100 $2,500 one-time scholarships will be awarded. 

Applicants of the Equitable Excellence® Scholarship must be high school seniors with financial need who plan to enroll in a full-time undergraduate course of study at an accredited two- or four-year college or university. Applicants must also reside in one of the 50 U.S. states, District of Columbia or Puerto Rico, and will be asked to demonstrate ambition and self-drive to be a force for good in school, community, or work activities.
