PB & J Scholarship Opportunities Priority Deadline May 31, 2021
The PB&J Scholarship is for students who have experienced personal challenges that may not have allowed them to perform well academically, but who still have the drive to succeed.
Examples of personal challenges include, but are not limited to:
- medical issues
- peer issues: bullying, change of school, minority status, etc.
- family issues: divorce, death, lack of income, homelessness, foster care, abuse, etc.
When in doubt, students are encouraged to apply; this scholarship is meant to be inclusive.
The priority deadline is December 31, 2020.
Evaluation & Process
Applicants will be evaluated based on their essay and letters of recommendation; there is no GPA requirement. Please note: letters of recommendation must directly reference the student’s challenges. If the applicant does not wish to share their challenges with their recommender, then the recommendation must reference the student’s personal character.
More than 10 scholarships will be awarded in 2020, based on financing. Winners will be notified in August.
The PB&J Scholarship is distributed by Scholar Sponsor, a non-profit 501c3.
