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 Award provides scholarship funding to students who are dedicated to achieving their dreams.  

This year, Equitable will award $750,000 in college scholarships to up to 200 remarkable young people throughout the nation representing all 50 states, Washington DC and Puerto Rico.  

Students have the opportunity to receive a $2,500 or renewable $5,000 scholarship.  

Applicants to the Equitable Excellence Scholarship must be high school seniors 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 be United States citizens or legal residents and will be asked to demonstrate outstanding achievement in a school, community, or workplace activity. Please note, only the first 10,000 applications will be accepted.
