Courage to Grow Scholarship program gives out $500.00 awards to students to help them realize their dream.
“We don’t want the college dreams and plans of so many young men and women to get lost in the financial shuffle. It takes a lot of determination and courage to forge ahead when sometimes it would be easier to give up.”
High school Juniors and Seniors can apply and need to have a GPA of 2.5 or higher. You will need to write an essay of 250 words or less and explain “Why you believe you should be awarded this scholarship?”
Even though a $500.00 award may not seem like a lot, every little bit helps. With tuition and costs of books going up, you will need to pinch every penny so that when you graduate, you will not go into debt.
