The “Pay it Forward” Scholarship

Looking back on my life thus far, I’ve realized that while I sometimes feel isolated and alone, I haven’t been alone. I’ve had the huge fortune to have many people help me in various ways, simply out of the goodness of their heart because they believed in me. And that has spurred me to offer to Pay it Forward, because sometimes we need a little help from our friends. The more we help others, the greater we all become.

The Pay it Forward Scholarship will offer one scholarship per year. This one is dedicated to Kristen Grimm and David Dreher

If you are interested in applying for one of the Scholarships, please answer the essay questions below and email them to me. The next Scholarship will start on May 1, 2019 and winners will be announced on January 15, 2020.
