The McConnell Foundation Scholars Program supports students who are likely to bring about positive change in their communities. Recipients are provided with a $30,000 scholarship, mentoring, and programs for personal and professional growth. Ideal candidates have significant financial need, are among the first generation in their family to pursue higher education, are committed to college as their pathway to success, and have already demonstrated the values of giving back and caring for others. Special consideration is given for those who have overcome significant challenges such as homelessness, participation in the foster-care system, or multi-generational poverty. The McConnell Foundation invests in students not just to help them as individuals, but also to help those individuals make things better for their families, their communities, and the greater society. The most important personal characteristic we look for is concern for the well-being of others. Academic achievement and success are important, but it takes more than those. To be a McConnell Scholar is to use your academic and professional success to help make things better for others as well as for yourself.Application/Link for website.
