A Better America Scholarship Program
Description: We want to reach out to the student generation and reward initiative, innovation and lofty idealism. Today’s students have the ability to seamlessly navigate the 21st century better than any previous generation. The world is shrinking, with globalization, speed of light communication and unprecedented access to knowledge via the Internet tearing down barriers to individual and community advancement. With a pocket-sized smartphone that would have been considered a supercomputer 40 years ago, a young person can turn the world on its head and take selfies all at the same time. Students must outline in 200 words or less how they intend to change America.
- Currently enrolled at an accredited university in the United States.
- A citizen of the United States, or have a valid green card.
- International students studying in the United States are eligible, but they will have to demonstrate their intention to stay in the country after graduation and see through their change-making agenda.
