Essential Visionaries Scholarship Fund 

The Essential Visionaries Scholarship Fund is awarding approximately 100 renewable scholarships up to $10,000/year for students seeking a degree or certificate in Education, Counseling, Social Work, Psychology or Pre-Nursing/Nursing.  

Applicants must be high school seniors or graduates or current college undergraduates in the United States, who plan to enroll in part-time or full-time undergraduate study at an accredited two- or four-year college, university or vocational-technical school for the entire upcoming academic year. Applicants must also have a minimum grade point average of 2.5 on a 4.0 scale (or its equivalent), and be planning to pursue an eligible major. Financial need will be prioritized. 

Recipients attending vocational-technical or two-year institutions will receive awards up to $5,000; recipients attending four-year schools will receive up to $10,000. Essential Visionaries Scholarships are renewable up to four years or until a bachelor’s degree is earned, whichever occurs first, on the basis of satisfactory academic performance and continued part-time or full-time enrollment in an eligible field of study.
