Every year, we award seven $2,500 scholarships to assist with the cost of higher education.
Unitus scholarship applicants are scored in the areas of academic achievement, community involvement, quality of scholarship materials, and commitment to pursuing higher education. The scholarships are available to student members as well as the child dependents, spouses, or significant others of Unitus employees.
Since the Unitus Scholarship Program launched in 2004, we’ve strived to find news way to support our student members while creating the most impactful scholarship program possible. Last year, we expanded our program award amount to $17,500 and added support for child dependents of Unitus employees.
To date, we’ve awarded more than 160 student scholarships totaling nearly $200,000.
And we’re not stopping there!
This year, we asked our scholarship recipients some questions about their future. Though recipients weren’t scored on describing themselves in one hashtag, their responses to this and other questions were a solid #10. Check out their answers to our first question:
